Recent downward trends in soil nutrient levels like Potassium (a key, and often yield-limiting nutrient), requires new thinking. Traditional “starter” or other types of fertilizers applied in the past no longer supplement the nutrients removed in annual production.

Therefore, a key area of focus involves our grid soil sampling program. This is a balanced approach to soil nutrient supplementation that allows for more grain and more forage production than ever before. If a field has areas with adequate or high soil test scores, fertilizer applications may be reduced or eliminated while areas with lower fertility may receive a higher allocation of nutrients. This allows for a possible increase in yield potential, more efficient input expenditure and therefore, an increase the field’s profitability! That’s a Win-Win approach!

Our precision ag services offerings include:
• Grid sampling
• Variable-rate fertilizer application and recommendations
• Variable-rate lime recommendations
• Variable-rate seeding recommendations
• Drone crop scouting

Each of these services is designed for efficiency and your profitability. Contact our agronomy team to schedule any of the precision ag services, today! Call 715-255-8507.
