Adam Gittens

General Manager

Adam Gittins developed a love for agriculture at an early age while helping out on the family farm in Neola. He attended Iowa State University where he earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Agricultural Business, with an area of emphasis in Farm Business Management. Working with GPS while crop scouting, Adam developed an interest in Precision Ag that led to a position with Ag Leader Technology in Ames, IA. He worked in their technical support department providing assistance with hardware and software to dealers and farmers around the world. Adam assisted with testing products and was the GPS and Guidance specialist. In the fall of 2005, Adam joined the then small Precision Ag team at HTS and relocated back near the family farm. With his in-depth technical knowledge, he hit the ground running and helped HTS grow their Precision Ag Department exponentially. In 2013, HTS was sold and the Precision Ag division became its own stand-alone company, HTS Ag, with Adam taking the helm as general manager. Adam has helped position HTS Ag in the drone industry, offering drones, training, and image stitching software for field analysis.
