Agronomic Consulting Services
As crop input prices continue to climb, the risks associated with crop production continue to rise as well. Managing those inputs is now more important than ever. Understanding your soil fertility levels is the first step to managing and maximizing your fertilizer inputs effectively. At Daylight Farm Supply we can sample your fields for soil fertility levels then make a recommendation based upon your production and profit goals. Since we are not a supplier of dry Phosphorous and Potassium fertilizers, we can make an unbiased recommendation as to what fertilizer you need to apply. We can also create variable application maps for you that we can send to your fertilizer supplier for a seamless integration of the sampling, recommendation and application process.
We recommend a zone sampling approach to our customers. Overlaying soil type maps on top of the field boundary, then breaking those soil zones up into smaller regions based upon field characteristics. We feel this approach is much more applicable to the actual nutrient utilization zones within the field since soil types typify water holding capacity and therefore yield capability.
