As you make your Joomla! site you will control the details of the display using options also referred to as parameters. Options control everything from whether the author's name is displayed to who can view what to the number of items shown on a list.

Default options for each component are changed using the Options button on the component toolbar.

Options can also be set on an individual item, such as an article or contact and in menu links.

If you are happy with how your site looks, it is fine to leave all of the options set to the defaults that were created when your site was installed. As you become more experienced with Joomla you will use options more.


About Us


Crop IMSSM was formed by a group of five investors with a vision to create an independent, third-party resource that growers could turn to for accurate, unbiased crop production information. As the company grew, we also gained purchasing power and a voice in the precision ag industry. Not only can we secure more attractive equipment prices, but manufacturers now integrate our field observations into the products they develop.

Because we’re not connected to a retail organization, we don’t approach our customers with an agenda. Our goal is to objectively analyze your situation and make recommendations that best fit your needs. We will evaluate your existing technology, discuss your production goals, and recommend any additional components needed to maximize the effectiveness of your current system, if necessary.

Though we aren’t affiliated with any single manufacturer, we do sell the finest technology and equipment from industry leaders such as Ag Leader®, Topcon Precision Ag, Juniper Systems, SST, RAM Mounting Systems, and Ag Cam. We’re also very comfortable with systems from John Deere, Case IH, and Agco.

With support staff located from Wisconsin to Kentucky, Crop IMS is ready to serve producers throughout the Corn Belt.
