Agronomy at AgCentral

AgCentral is driven by our Agronomy Philosophy: For true ‘sustainability’ to occur, a triad approach of environmental responsibility, soil health, and financial sustainability for any farmer and landowner is the sensible approach to agronomy.
 
We practice our philosophy by reaching for our Agronomy Goal:  is to help producers who manage acreages of any size to achieve their goals of long-term, multi-faceted sustainability so their farmlands will be preserved for future generations.
 
AgCentral has well-trained, qualified staff members which can assist with every aspect of your agronomy program. Our Agronomists, including Certified Crop Advisors,  go through extensive training sessions throughout the year to make sure their knowledge is current, so they can provide the most up-to-date information for any crop need or challenge a producer faces.  They often service as crop program consultants and scouts. The added bonus of working in their own cropping situations with families and neighbors provides invaluable ‘boots on the ground’ experience.

TECHNOLOGY LEADER & PIONEER!

AgCentral always strives to be a leader and pioneer in any technology available.
 
AgCentral customers have been using ‘Precision Agriculture’ programs since 1997 – making us the first in East Tn, and among the first in the southeast, to offer a complete precision ag input program, including soil sampling, maps, and precise application of nutrients.  As technology has advanced, so has our equipment and technology. 
 
Incompass is the current program we use to bundle all of our Precision Ag efforts and data collection. Even though we’ve been at it over 20 years, we remain amazed at the roles that smartphones, satellite sensors, tractor computers, and ‘whatever comes next’ helps us to improve farming methods every day.
 
We are pleased to work with many trusted industry partners to achieve our agronomy goals.
 
We are proud that we work side-by-side with our producers to face agriculture’s challenges.  Thanks to all who make AgCentral their Agronomy Partner!

Crop Protection

We know the needs for spraying, herbicide application, and fertilization vary from season to season and crop-to-crop. As far as spraying, we have a dedicated pasture sprayer which can cover smaller acreages and fields, to a Vector which can easily handle those large fields. Our agronomists can work with your farming plans to help you identify the best selections to fit all your variables into any one crop-year or long-term package!

Seed

Environmental responsibility is equally as important as Soil Health, and in all reality, they are interchangeable terms. While we firmly believe in record keeping applicable to environmental protection, we also believe that an ‘instinct of farming’ and responsibility to future generations are things that can’t be measured, but vital to future farming success.
 
The southeast has many diverse soil types. Row-cropping and pasture operations, specialty crops, and beef, dairy or small livestock operations all call for different crop needs. Seed companies have a diverse array of varieties to fit any number of markets.  We can help find your best ‘total picture’ to combine all cropping elements you are putting together! Always remember: what works for one farm may not work for another due to any variety of factors!

Crop Nutrients

For us, Soil Health is – and always has been – a part of our culture, and not just a trendy term. Unless we take care of the soil, it is not going to take care of us – that is the basis of Life itself.  Soil health is the result of a complete, complex symbiotic soil care system which includes soil testing, fertilization, seed selection, tillage choices, and, when needed, the application of approved and tested crop protection agents.
