Farmers Edge, Trotter Fertilizer Partner to Elevate Variable-Rate Technology Services

Through a partnership with Farmers Edge, Trotter Fertilizer will be able to provide growers with advanced precision agronomy recommendations from Farmers Edge to enhance an existing variable-rate technology (VRT) program for its central Nebraska customers.

The Farmers Edge FieldReady program deploys a team of precision technology specialists who visit the farm to assess all equipment and ensure that maps are installed and implemented correctly. Leveraging their proprietary CanPlug, as-applied information is collected in real time. Farmers Edge also provides Precision Profit Maps that ensure customers can measure the impact of a crop input and farm management decisions, as well as compare those inputs by zone.

“Our objective is, and always has been, to provide our local growers with the best and most innovative solutions that will help their local communities thrive,” says Jesse Trotter of Trotter Inc. “For us, working with Farmers Edge and their in-field agronomic team to boost our VRT offering builds on our tradition of exceptional customer service and will provide our growers with the accurate prescription maps that ensure Nebraska remains a dominant corn- and soybean-producing state.”

This collaboration also means Trotter Fertilizer customers will have access to the Farmers Edge Precision Solutions platform. The platform, which integrates easily with a grower’s existing equipment and programs, is a comprehensive turnkey system that includes: variable-rate technology, soil sampling and analysis, field-centric weather, in-field telematics and data transfer, high-resolution satellite imagery, and field-centric data analytics. In addition, a grower will have access to FarmCommand, an integrated farm management system, and a network of highly experienced, trusted advisers.

“Traditionally, the fertilizer industry has lacked access to a complete agronomic solution that brings together technology and personalized support,” says Wade Barnes, president and CEO of Farmers Edge. “By partnering with Trotter Fertilizer, we’re ensuring that growers throughout Nebraska have access to our leading edge technology and, in doing so, are providing additional value to their farm management programs. In a tough commodity market, we’re equipping growers with the right decision-support data that can improve their bottom lines, while sustainably boosting productivity on the farm.”
