MOORESVILLE, Ind. -- Simpson Farm Enterprises Inc., an agricultural sprayer dealer and products business with four locations in Kansas, was recognized for its outstanding sales performance in 2013 as an Apache Sprayer Dealer by Equipment Technologies, the manufacturer of Apache-brand sprayers.

Simpson received the Dealer of the Year award, Top 5 Sales Growth first place and Top 5 Market Share fourth place during the Equipment Technologies annual dealer sales meeting in July at the company's Indiana headquarters.
