Pattison Liquid Systems Inc. is a leading manufacturer of liquid fertilizer application and handling equipment, located at Lemberg, Saskatchewan. Brothers Rick and Larry Pattison founded the company known as Pattison Bros Agro Ltd in 1979. Pattison Brothers Agro Ltd. retailed all forms of fertilizer (with liquid being the majority), crop inputs, crop protection and provided custom application from their retail outlets in Lemberg and Wadena from 1979 to 1998, when the retail stores were sold. Pattison Liquid Systems Inc. continues the dedication to manufacture the highest quality liquid fertilizer equipment as Pattison Brothers had done since 1981. The Pattison’s have used liquid fertilizer on their own grain farm since 1979 and continue to do so today.

Over the years trends have changed in the methods of fertilizer application and the equipment required. The Pattison’s have either been instrumental in the changes to the application methods themselves or in adopting the equipment to meet the changes. Pattison Liquid Systems Inc. is aware of the demands today’s farming can place on producers and equipment alike. Pattison Liquid Systems manufactures equipment that is designed, manufactured and tested by farmers to meet those demands.
There are two application methods that are presently quite popular, the first being direct seeding with liquids, where all of your nutrient requirements are placed at the time of seeding and the second being dribble banding, where nutrients are top dressed to meet the needs of economic and environmental factors.
There are many reasons for the current demand of liquids fertilizers. Here are a few of the most popular reasons more and more farmers are switching to liquid:
- Placement -The ability to precisely place the nutrients in close proximity to the seed without risking seedling damage.
- Efficiency - By connecting a liquid wagon to an air seeder, growers are able to, in many cases, double the number of acres /fill of seed.
- Cost - It is very simple and low cost to convert ones existing equipment to a direct seeding system
- Agronomics - The composition of liquid nitrogen (28-0-0) being UAN or urea ammonium nitrate, allows for a somewhat timed release of nitrogen throughout the growing year.
- Flexibility - The ability to dribble band liquids in a post-emergent application.
- Simplicity and Safety!!!
Pattison Liquid Systems Inc. presently manufacture a full line of equipment for the application and handling of liquid fertilizer.
If you are considering making a change to your seeding tool or seeding system, be sure to give Pattison Liquid Systems Inc a call to discuss using liquid fertilizer as your source of plant nutrition. Make the switch. You won’t be sorry!
