It must be frustrating for ag advisors. Challenged with the responsibility of helping growers optimize their resources without good decision tools has got to be a tricky business. Imagine trying to sell an expensive bag of seed without giving the farmer information about the seed performance. I’m guessing the conversation would be pretty short and fruitless. Similarly, when ag advisors are unable to offer smart solutions for growers hoping to implement continuous improvement practices, it likely will be an unproductive conversation.
But just think how much more ag advisors could offer, if only they could give farmers the specifics on sustainability. That is what an ag advisor gets with the Tier 2 products in Agren’s Sustainability Solution. Ag advisors can rapidly analyze and understand the impact of management scenarios on soil and nitrogen loss for each field. For example, ag advisors can answer the questions: how much soil productivity could be gained by changing tillage systems and how much nitrogen loss could be avoided by moving to a split application?
It’s a simple, straightforward and inexpensive process, one that requires no farmer information. It is site specific for an individual farmer’s field, and only asks the field agronomist to select up to three management scenarios to run in a batch process.
