Manganese is one of 17 essential plant nutrients for plants to grow and produce a crop. Manganese is considered a micronutrient as it is taken up by plants in small quantities.

Vice President of Agronomy Update

Dec 01, 2021

Supply chain issues continue to make doing business more eventful than the past, but we have been blessed with a good crop year overall for our area.  On July 27 and 28th, Paul Roemer from Fond du Lac, and Ryan Dubois from Wrightstown came with me to South Dakota to look at DOT.  This is Ravens autonomous sprayer.  The driver ran it from a control box like he was playing with his X-Box (I’m an Atari person). As we watched this demo, the field next to us had a combine, and the driver was perfecting getting the grain cart to come to him on demand.   Things we always dreamed about are starting to become reality.
