Why is soil testing/sampling important for your farm?

Not all agronomists conduct the same quality soil tests. It’s more than just driving to random spots on your field and collecting cores. Quality soil testing is done through planning, mapping, and having the correct soil conditions for the most accurate results. We take multiple samples and review the results of each nutrient with you to optimize your crop’s fertility. Based on that data, we can create a tailored crop fertility plan that enables you to make informed decisions about fertilizer use, crop rotations, and improving your crop yields. 

Watch the difference between how a good and a bad soil sample is collected.

How can crop rotation help with soil fertility?

Crop rotation is an important tool for maintaining soil fertility. Growing different crops in different fields yearly ensures that each field gets its nutrients. This helps to prevent nutrient depletion and keeps your soils healthy.

Additionally, crop rotation can help control weeds and pests and improve water infiltration and drainage. All of these factors contribute to healthier, more productive soils.

What is agronomy benchmarking, and how is it beneficial for my farm?

Agricultural benchmarking is the process of comparing your farm’s performance to that of other farms in order to identify areas where you can improve. This can be done by looking at various factors such as production costs, yield levels, and resource use efficiency. Benchmarking can help you identify best practices you can adopt to improve your farm’s performance. It can also help you to identify areas where your farm is performing well so that you can continue to build on your success. In other words, benchmarking can help you find ways to reduce costs, increase efficiency, and improve your overall operation. We have years of experience and work with farms across Southern Manitoba. By hiring us, you get our years of localized knowledge. 

Crop and fertility planning are important considerations for any farmer. Soil testing and crop rotation can help to improve soil fertility, while agricultural benchmarking can help identify ways to improve overall farm performance. By taking a proactive approach to these factors, farmers can ensure that their operation is successful both now and in the future.
