a precise crop management strategy
MPS is a systematic approach which begins with a cropping plan, customized to deliver optimal solutions through precise placement in each field, starting at the individual seed & plant level.
We help select, place and manage your seed in alignment with your customized cropping plan, utilizing the latest technology to manage inputs along with year-round AYS leadership.
AgVenture McKillip Seeds’ team of experts analyze and interpret annual yield results after harvest to help refine your plan for next year through crop planning and pre-planting meetings.
AgVenture McKillip Seeds products using MPS requirements
To execute optimal planting protocol, your AYS follows the planter and offers guidance on:
- Residue management
- Preparing seed bed for planting
- Planter depth, speed and spacing
- Analyzing soil conditions
- Monitoring singulation and distribution
After planting, your AYS will evaluate crop emergence with a net effective plant stand (NEPS) analysis to generate:
- More full value ears
- Uniform emergence
- Stronger stands
crop with a resilient attitude
Develop the MPS mindset and never give up on your crop.
You must believe that higher yields are possible and discover innovative strategies to achieve your goals.
Your AgVenture Yield Specialist will be by your side from planting to harvest and every day in between, providing optimal solutions for each field. Your AYS will also create a pre-harvest plan and ride alongside in the combine to help analyze yields and decisions made throughout the season.
A Fresh Approach to Service
An AgVenture Yield Specialist (AYS) is not your everyday seed sales representative. They’re a seasoned professional, a trusted advisor and a dedicated partner relentlessly pursuing the best techniques to improve your bottom line. Their first priority is the relationship with you, the farmer, not seed sales. That’s why they stick around long after the sale is made.
Your AYS is dedicated to crop management. Each one has in-depth knowledge of their respective areas, allowing them to be completely tuned in to the specific growing obstacles of your area. Through precise planning and calculation at each step, from pre-planting to post-harvest, your AYS delivers the information you need. This knowledge also allows them to make corn and soybean seed recommendations designed specifically to thrive in your environment. Your AYS is educated in every hybrid and variety available and will be there to make sure you’re on track to achieving the maximum corn and soybean yields possible.
Precision Agriculture and Farming Technology
ProfiZone is AgVenture’s advanced crop management system that provides you with a variety of precision farming tools focused on maximizing your high potential yield areas.
This system utilizes five key areas to help enhance your farming operation:
- Optimal Planning
- Crop Management Tools
- Detailed Analytics and Reporting
- Variable Rate Capabilities
- Agronomic Support
We are implicitly committed to our customers and their profitability today and into the next generation. We go beyond offering top-quality seed products. We farm too, so we define every parameter influencing the crop. Testament to our dedication to whole crop performance, we have developed and tested a dual hybrid planter to address specific variability in soil types.
Precision ag techniques provide many farmers with advanced data sets that can help better understand a growing environment and enhance crop performance. Mapping soil composition using its electrical conductivity (EC) is one such approach. Cation exchange capacity (CEC) shows the soil’s ability to supply calcium, magnesium, and potassium, making it a beneficial indicator of soil fertility.
At McKillip Seeds, we establish EC zones, CEC zones and plant specifically for ideal genetic and environment performance. The extent of our innovative approach to seed placement is demonstrated in our on-farm tests with the dual hybrid planter. Going deep into prescription planting, the dual hybrid planter allows us to place specific hybrids in the zones most advantageous for that hybrid and the soil type you’re planting into. Our customers are benefiting from this precision-focused seed placement technique.
Following our MPS prescription planting plans allows our customers to select not only the specific varieties desired for a specific farm, but to develop a customized seed treatment package giving the crop the best advantage at stand establishment.
With McKillip Seeds and your AgVenture Yield Specialist as your partners in ProfiZone, together you will monitor and measure, define and refine what your fields need to reach their maximum potential.
In addition, year-over-year predictive knowledge gained from ProfiZone’s in-depth analysis allows you to be proactive, rather than reactive, in your crop management strategy.
ProfiZone is the next evolution of the Maximum Profit System™, and it’s the best way to keep you Growing Forward.
Higher Yields are Within Reach
Through the Maximum Profit System™, AgVenture’s high-yield strategies for corn and soybeans are designed to boost production and help you see bigger numbers at harvest time.
300-Bushel Corn High-Yield Strategy
Within every bag of seed corn is the genetic potential to produce 600 bushels of grain or more per acre. AgVenture believes that attaining at least half of those potential bushels is a very achievable goal. It’s one of the most the most achievable goals in agriculture, and AgVenture McKillip Seeds knows the farming methods you need to make it happen.
150-Bushel Soybean High-Yield Strategy
Every bag of soybean seed has the genetic potential to produce 300 bushels of grain or more per acre. Just like AgVenture’s belief about corn yield, achieving this goal is very attainable as well. The farming methods you’ll learn through participating in the Maximum Profit System will help you impact the production and profit of your farm.
