XSAg.com to become Farmtrade.com
The US online agrochemical trading business, XSAg.com (Cary, North Carolina), is to change its name to Farmtrade.com in summer 2014. The move follows a record 35% increase in transactions in 2013, which was the first year the business operated under new ownership. XS Inc sold the business to an entity composed of former XSAg.com employees at the start of the year (Agrow No 656, p 5). "We have become the premiere online destination for growers, dealers, distributors and manufacturers to connect and trade crop protection chemicals conveniently and securely," says Farmtrade president Jeff Stow.
