Every year farmers across the nation try to push yields to the limit. Proper nutrient management can make a big difference in crop yield, however, each year the cost of proper nutrient management increases. You can practice efficient crop fertilization with variable rate applications. Variable rate application will apply fertilizer at the rate necessary to ensure proper nutrient management in each section of your field. MAC Breckenridge and Middleton specialize in these services, contact our nearest facilities for further details or price quote.
MAC can send a soil sampling crew to your field to map and grid your fields for sampling. The samples are sent to an independent third party lab where an analysis report is then mailed back to MAC. The analysis reports can then be used to create a crop fertilization plan for your upcoming crop.
After a field is mapped out and soil sampled using GPS technology we take the results of the soil sample to apply to the variable rate application grid. Recommendations can be created and adjusted according to your desire, needs, or soil type.
MAC has equipment available for you to rent for your own fertilizer application needs. Call ahead and you can have a spreader filled with your fertilizer blend and ready to take out to the field. Side dressing equipment is available on request. Please contact our agronomy facilities for pricing.
