Progressive Ag Coop - Agronomy Department

Agronomy Overview:

Farming is a science.  It is evolving more all the time with good management decisions to produce top yields using the latest technology. Yield is based on selection of the right seed genetics and proper amount of fertilizer with the right crop protection products to grow the most bushels per acre.  At the Progressive Ag Coop Agronomy Department we are committed to partnering with our growers, focusing on fertility and herbicide programs to maximize production on every acre.  Progressive Ag Coop wants to be a trusted partner to complement your operation.

We have an experienced and knowledgeable staff and Certified Crop Agronomists that will assist you in making your management decisions related to fertilizer, crop protection choices plus seed and seed treatment options. Our Precision Ag Services are available to maximize yields on every acre.

  • Seed Solutions: Our seed lineup includes Dyna-Gro, LG Seed, NK, Stine and Warner Seeds. Bulk seed delivery is offered as an option for you.

  • Fertilizer: We offer a wide range of fertilizer products that will fit most all crop situations- Anhydrous Ammonia, Urea, 11-52-0, 18-46-0, MESZ (12-40-0-10S-1Z).  We can broadcast apply any dry program to fit your needs, or arrange for delivery to your farm.

Progressive Ag Coop Agronomy – Precision Ag Services

 We have the people, equipment and partnership with Servi-Tech to bring you top notch precision ag programs to make the most of every acre. 

 

Equipment: We have an air flow unit equipped for variable rate application of two macro nutrients and one micro nutrient box.  We also incorporate spinner- spreader units to apply lime VRT. 

People: Our Sales Agronomist, Agronomy support staff and Servi-Tech are all trained in the products and programs that develop a complete Precision Ag Program that fits your needs.  Custom application is another integral part of making sure the VRT application is done correctly by our trained applicators. 

Grid Sampling: Our Agronomy staff and Servi-Tech can pull samples based on a 2.5 acre grid pattern on your field.  This will determine the pH of your soils as well nutrient level variability.  The benefit of grid samples is take a closer look at field variability and to only apply the nutrients and lime where it is needed to a more balanced fertility program for your fields. 

Other Services: These include Yield Maps that serve as a valuable resource in making future farm plans to meet crop input needs in turn to maximize yield.  This leads to creating management zones for variable fertilizing and the potential to look at variable rate seeding.
