Willmar and Little Falls branches of Anez Consulting offer various precision ag services.  We work with custom applicators, co-ops, and farmers themselves to enable variable rate applications of:

  • Seed
  • Fertilizer
  • Lime
  • Amendments (eg; Gypsum)

We offer:

  • Management Zone Creation and Sampling
  • Veris EC Mapping
  • Grid Sampling

Analysis

We are equipped to help growers get the most from their technology investments; whether they be yield mapping, flying UAVs, or  variable-rate planting.

We have the agronomic and technical expertise to take farm data and turn it into actionable intelligence.  Furthermore, we pride ourselves on knowing which layers of agronomic data to apply to a given situation–using the right tool for the job, so to speak.

Management Zones

Using our proprietary method of management zone creation, we have established strong correlation to:

  • Soil Organic Matter
  • Soil Texture
  • Plant Available Moisture
  • Micronutrients (Boron and Manganese especially)

Veris EC Mapping

EC mapping is an effective way to delineate management zones.  Shallow EC readings may be used to guide variable rate fertilizer and lime applications, while deep readings may be beneficial for variable rate planting.  Both readings are recorded with just one pass of the Veris cart and EC correlates strongly to soil texture.

Grid Sampling

This has historically been the most commonly used practice for delineating spatial variability and enabling variable rate fertilizer and lime applications.
