Soils Clinic

Wednesday, January 12th & Thursday, January 13th

9:30 am – 3:00 pm Central
47669 252nd Street, Baltic, SD 57003
at the Morton Center

If you knew how to read a soil test from top to bottom AND make your own fertility recommendations, do you think you could:

A) Cut Your Fertilizer Expense?

B) Increase Your Yields?

Or…  C) Both?

Regardless of whether you pick A, B, or C, aren’t those all home runs?  Don’t they all make you more money?

I realize your parents or grandparents probably never taught you how to read a soil test or make fertility recommendations because let’s face it – their yields were never even close to as high as yours, and their need for fertilizer was much, much, much less. Not to mention the fact they may have had livestock and free manure, whereas you may have no livestock and all commercial fertilizer. Here’s my point. Your parents and grandparents knew there were more important things than soil tests and commercial fertilizer years ago, but now that yield levels are where they are and fertilizer prices are dramatically higher, you are likely spending hundreds of thousands, if not millions on fertilizer each year! Don’t you think you should know a lot about something you are investing that much money in?

Let’s go one step further. What information will you pass on to your kids and grandkids? Stuff that makes them $10 per hour? Or something that could make them $10,000 per hour? Is knowing soil tests and fertility a $10,000 per hour job?

It certainly could be in the future, and it potentially is today. Spend one day with us. Learn how to read a soil test and make your own fertility recommendations. It’s not that difficult, but if you don’t have this knowledge, you are effectively giving your fertilizer dealer a blank check. And then, are you really getting exactly what YOU need, or is your fertilizer dealer simply getting what HE needs?

This could be one of the most important days of your life. It’s free. I can promise you it will be worth your time. I would encourage you to make the trip. Bring your soil tests. We will have soils agronomists there to help you sort through your tests, on top of all the information we will provide you throughout this two-day clinic.

Naturals Workshop

Wednesday, February 16th

10:00 am – 3:00 pm Central
at the Morton Center
47669 252nd Street, Baltic, SD 57003

Unlike many crop inputs that are intended to work for specific crops and those specific crops only, natural products are designed to support soil health and plant physiology. It’s more than biologicals and more than just soil additives.

Our research team has been testing hundreds of naturals products for many years, and we want to share what we have learned with you!  Join us on Wednesday, February 16th to learn about the technology behind naturals products, how to distinguish which naturals products may be right for your farm, and how naturals can boost overall yields, soil health, and profit.
