The Power of Precision Ag
Real world agronomy is complex. To do it right, no one can make what is complex, simple but we can make it easier. That’s what Premier Crop does – we don’t take short-cuts or pretend we have all the answers. We work with you, as an extension of your farm, organizing data into one system, constantly testing and checking if our work is right. We’re different because we don’t tell you what to do, we work with you to grow your farm with your goals as our measurement of success.
Virtually all precision ag companies love to display data using colorful maps. Premier Crop is just as guilty as any other company of ignoring the 10% of our customers that can't see differences in our red-to-green yield maps.
The best data is color blind! It isn't cleansed or stored or manipulated to tilt the results in one direction or another. Color blind data has no stake in what product or rate wins. Read more about color blind data.
In tough economic times, it is more imperative than ever to know your productivity and be able to evaluate the cost or benefit of your decisions. Our mission at Premier Crop is to make this easy for you and give you multiple ways to evaluate across your operation.
The first measurement is the cost per bushel on a spatial level to give you a new look at each individual area of your field. Read more of our three part series focusing on ways to determine your field profitability using your technology. Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.

Using a precision ag service on your farm will reduce your risk and give you the confidence in the decisions you make. Get a team of experts that can help you make important data-driven decisions so you can focus on what is most important to you.

"In tough years, it's even more important to manage your inputs and to maximize profit. Way too often, I hear people want to maximize yield and, obviously, the more bushels you have, the more you have to sell. But if it costs you too much to raise, you might not have increased your profitability by increasing yield." – Eric Marchand, Britt, IA, Listen to northern Iowa farmer Eric Marchand’s podcast episode.
