In the late 1950’s, Harvey Asmus introduced a new way to farm. Chemical weed control was not a foreign concept, but it certainly wasn’t adopted by the masses. Within the first decade of it’s existence, Asmus Farm Supply flourished in the new era of farming.
Harvey started out small where his office was the kitchen table in the old farmhouse. The original warehouse building was a 24′ x 24′ storage shed, which has since gave way to larger warehouse space. It was used to store commodity soybeans that was raised on the farm. It now stands in the back grove of our home office in Rake, Iowa.
Today, we are still a family-owned agricultural business that has specializes in crop protection, plant nutrition, seed and seed treatment. AFS today continues representing all major chemical manufacturers, as we always have, and Pioneer Hi-Bred seeds.
Together, Harlan and Amy Asmus have expanded the business and have become well known industry leaders for agronomic inputs and recommendations and continue to support the ag industry through international and local speaking engagements.
At Asmus Farm Supply, selling is more than just price. We build personal relationships with each of our customers through face-to-face business. We strive to listen to your production problems, and through our product knowledge, recommend a program that is tailored to your needs.
