Improving Agronomic Profitability through ProTech Analysis

Data Collection & Analysis

ProTech Partners is dedicated to increasing the productivity of your land. By using information obtained from Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites, along with detailed planning. ProTech Partners enables farmers to analyze hundreds of variables for each piece of ground on their farms.

ProTech Partners will help increase your yield through data collection, data analysis  and then offering recommendation based off of the data analysis. We start by sampling your soil to test for different amounts of nutrients in the different zones of your field. By identifying these zones and the production potential, soil sampling aids in the knowledge of inputs for your fields.

ProTech also offers crop scouting, which is very important to the process in maximizing your yield results. A dedicated trusted adviser will observe your production variables for your fields. They will also collect plant production information and assess plant stands for your field. We will help identify any weed or insect pressures that need to be treated. Through crop scouting our advisers ground truth to our recommendations for a grower's field.

Soil Sampling

Grid soil sampling is important, as it recognizes the variability that exists in all fields and addresses the need to apply different amounts of nutrients in different areas of the field. More important though is to identify different zones in a field. "A" zones are those zones identified with the most production potential  "B" zones are those areas identified as average to above average production potential, and "C" zones are those areas that are least productive. By understanding these management zones grid soil sampling is done within the zone.

Crop Scouting

Crop Scouting is key to making field observations about crop progress once the crop is planted. It provides the trusted adviser and the grower the opportunity to be aware of:

  • Observation of production variables that may be limiting to yield
  • Collect plant production information, assess plant stands
  • Identify weed and/or insect pressures that need to be treated
  • Ground truth the recommendations that have been made to the grower
