This expansion marks the latest advancement in Landus’ initiative to put farmers at the center of ag innovation
Ames, IA., (November 16, 2021) – Landus today announced its intent to enter a long-term lease agreement to expand its Innovation Center to the Gray’s Landing commercial development site in downtown Des Moines.
The company first launched this farmer-centric innovation initiative in June at an existing office in Ralston, Iowa, where farmers could connect directly with global innovation leaders to drive a more sustainable and profitable future of farming. Landus will continue to operate this complementary rural innovation hub in conjunction with the planned expansion in Des Moines.
“Our Innovation Center has experienced great success in its first year and I look forward to more growth ahead. Des Moines provides us the opportunity to enhance this piece of our business and better support future collaborations with leaders in data and emerging technologies,” said Matt Carstens, President and CEO of Landus. “We will continue to put our farmer-owners at the center of everything we do, giving them a greater voice with collaborators in the ag innovation space.”
In addition to the expanded Innovation Center Landus plans to build out open-concept employee workspaces onsite granting its remote workers a unique space to collaborate, foster connections, and engage with Innovation Center Events.
