                 LETTER FROM PRECISION AG:


With fall harvest winding down, it is becoming time to shift gears into the 2018 season.
As growers begin to focus on crop plans for next year, we begin to think about seed, chemical, and fertilizer needs.
This is also a good time to think about what inputs performed and what inputs did not perform this growing season.
Maybe a variety performed better on a certain soil type then it did on another.
Was a fungicide a good return on my investment?
 
One way you are able to evaluate what performed well and what did not is by collecting yield information.
In the past year that I have been at Great Bend Coop,
I came across several growers that have the ability to collect yield data but have yet to take it.
Yield data collection is one of the easiest steps into precision agriculture. By collecting yield data,
this empowers you to make invaluable decisions for the next production season.
 
In many cases, there is more variability in the field than most realize.
With lower commodity prices, growers are only paying close attention to their inputs.
Variable rate application can aid in improving your bottom line. By using variable rate application,
this ensures every acre is the most profitable.
A lower production area can sometimes be difficult to see a return on investment.
If these areas of the field consistently yield lower than the rest of the field, why continue to invest extra money?
Using zone management is a good tool to aid in maximizing profitability on a per acre basis.
 
These management zones can be identified different ways. Yield data is one of the easiest ways to get started.
By identifying higher and lower producing areas of the field, this allows us to treat each zone as its own field.
For a grower that is not able to collect yield data, satellite imagery is also an option.
Another option is identifying soil types with machines like a Veris unit.    
 
Regardless how a grower decides to make the step into precision ag,
myself and the staff at Great Bend Coop have the tools to get you started.
Although it can seem overwhelming to handle the data, it is my goal to make the process as simple as possible.
We have some great opportunities for you to take advantage of for next year.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Thank you,
 
Mark Bauer
