Advanced Grain Farms utilizes a professional crop consultant for fertility recommendations, every acre is sampled on a two year rotation, sampling usually takes place on bean stubble that will be going into corn production for the following year. The ground is sampled from zones that are made and then geo-referenced (marked for use with a GPS unit) for the crop consultant to precisely sample the zones utilizing a handheld GPS device that will guide him to the zones needing sampled. The samples are then bagged and sent to a lab to be analyzed. Once results are received recommendations are made based on the labs analysis. We then use those recommendations to precisely fertilize fields

This information is stored and utilized for fertility benchmarks to not over fertilize or under fertilize. During the growing season certified crop consultants are utilized that monitor the health of the crops grown to include pest management along with weed management.
