In addition to using the best outside consultants available we also have two agrologists on farm. This helps to ensure that crops are monitored on a regular basis during the growing season. Once economic thresholds have been reached and control is required this allows us to select the best product for the job and ensure that it is applied correctly to provide optimal control of the problem.
Fertilizer is one of the most important inputs in agriculture as well as the biggest source of greenhouse gas in crop production. To ensure it is used responsibly we soil test every field each year to determine it nutrient status and from there we can formulate a fertilizer plan based on 4R nutrient stewardship principals to both optimize crop growth and maintain soil fertility.
