Precision Information For Maximum Return

The role of precision agriculture has become invaluable. A well structured precision agriculture program can be utilized to monitor and manage every aspect of farming. Improvements in technology have increased accuracy of data collection from a few feet to within a couple of inches. Variable rate technology can now be used when planting seed and applying lime and many other nutrients.

Central Advantage GS has been the Precision Ag leader in southern Minnesota since 2003. The program started with 10,000 acres and consisted of basic data analysis and variety selection. Since its introduction, Central Advantage has grown to over 250,000 acres, which represent 150 different farming operations.

NITRATE NOW

When managed correctly, nitrogen can account for over half of a corn crop’s yield potential. Effective nitrogen management requires fast and accurate soil measurements to determine optimal application rates. The NitrateNow program was developed to manage your nitrogen by using your soil data to create a recommendation for the right amount of nitrogen to apply to the right areas of the field to maximize yield. The program strives to increase nitrogen use efficiency, while minimizing the application of excess nitrogen. A more efficient N program saves money and can improve yields.
