STORY CITY AND GOWRIE, IA – APRIL 3, 2017 – TerrAvion, which helps farmers take a high-tech approach to improving yield and revenue through the use of best-in-class aerial imagery at a fraction of the cost of any other imagery provider, announced today that it has expanded its presence in Iowa, appointing Regional Vice Presidents Matt Swanson and Ron King to lead sales in the region. Swanson will focus on Eastern Iowa and King will focus on Western Iowa.

Iowa is a hugely important agricultural market, and company founder Robert Morris is thrilled to bring TerrAvion's services to Iowa to help farmers increase their profitability. "Frequent, high-quality aerial imagery provides actionable information to drive profitability," said Morris. "We have terrific partners in Iowa who are helping raise awareness among growers of the benefits of aerial imagery. Having Matt and Ron dedicated completely to the state shows our commitment to this region and will help accelerate TerrAvion's growth here."

TerrAvion provides high-quality, subscription aerial imagery to help growers make their operations more profitable.
