The key element of “gimme caps,”( as in “Gimme one of them caps,” as the farmers would ask their seed or equipment dealer for free promotional headwear), agriculture and related industries have long relied on embroidered patches to advertise their products and services.
Most popular are the corn and other seed producing companies, who have been emblazoning hats, jackets and other items with beautifully embroidered artistry for years. Primarily corn (for which there are many hybrid varieties), but also other agricultural producers realize the inherent promotional value of an embroidered patch in raising and maintaining company visibility.
Of all the agricultural equipment manufacturers, John Deere has probably grown the highest profile in the ag patch community, but many other companies take advantage of embroidered patches to create visibility for their products.
State agricultural inspectors can be readily identified by embroidered patches on the shoulders and pockets of their uniform shirts. Even the U.S. Forest Service, part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, can be counted as part of the ag patch universe.
