PROVANTAGE

Every acre in your field is different; why treat them the same?

ProVantage is our precision agronomy program tailored to meet your specific needs based on data analysis and our local agronomic knowledge. Although our analytical focus is to maximize your return on your inputs, our job is to maximize your yield.

Environmentally, economically and agronomically every acre counts in ProVantage; regardless of the size of your operation.

ProVantage centers on giving you the information to make more profitable decisions. There are no secret algorithms or formulas; just information, analysis and advice to help you make sound agronomic decisions.

THE ADVANTAGE


1. CAPITALIZE ON DATA POTENTIAL

You have years of brightly colored field maps but have you done anything with them? It’s time to put those maps to work. By understanding what causes specific areas to be highly productive or low yielding, our data analysis team can turn your under-used data into one of your most valuable planning tools.

Want to know how your fields are stacking up in relation to your area? ProVantage is also a great benchmarking tool to compare your fields with the anonymous community data.

2. MAXIMIZE INPUT EFFECTIVENESS
Since every acre is not the same, why put extra inputs in the zones that consistently under produce? By aligning seeding rates and fertilizer application to the various zones in your field, you can save on your input costs and amplify your chances of boosting yields.
3. PROFIT PROGRESSIVE ANALYTICS
ProVantage and our Precision Specialists go beyond variable rate recommendations and identifying productive zones. At the end of harvest, we are dedicated to identify what worked, what didn’t and what needs to be implemented next year. You can guarantee the knowledge and context our staff brings is local knowledge, not data harvested from a different region of the country. By collecting and organizing years of data, we can also expose hidden relationships and correlations while getting one step closer to delivering a perfect site-specific plan for ultimate profitability.

HOW IT WORKS



1. SOIL SAMPLING

You have to know where you are to get where you’re going. That’s why soil sampling is the foundation of ProVantage. After we analyze and understand your soil test levels we’ll start building variable rate nutrient recommendations for each field.

2. MANAGEMENT ZONES
& VR PLANTING

Yield potential across and within fields is not uniform. Utilizing your historical yield, we’ll build Management Zones within your field. Understanding these zones leads us in creating variable rate planting recommendations for managing inputs within each field. We’ll push fertility and plant populations in A zones (most productive areas), manage B zones at your normal levels and scale back inputs appropriately in C zones (highly variable yielding areas).

3. LEARNING BLOCKS

Learning Blocks are small (1-2 acre), repeatable trials within your field. We can test different plant populations, nutrient application rates, and much more. Learning Blocks allow us to conduct small, low-risk trials that can be analyzed. These Learning Block Reports give us actionable information from your field, not a research farm hundreds of miles away.

4. AGRONOMIC DATA ANALYSIS

Have you ever questioned whether you did the right thing this year? ProVantage’s Agronomic Data Analytics helps us answer that and many other questions. Other programs can make a variable rate planting recommendation but where is the follow up at harvest? We think harvest is the most important time of the year where we learn how nutrient and management decisions affected yield. Field and Operation Level Reports identify what the drivers of yield are in each field so we can optimize their placement.
