Our goal is to offer complete solutions with a full lineup of products and services to meet your precision ag needs. We look forward to visiting with you!

GRID SOIL SAMPLING

Grid sampling is the foundation of precision ag. Yield can vary widely across the field. The same is true for soil fertility, regardless of how uniform your field may appear. A 2.5 acre grid sample provides the best high resolution “image” of your soil fertility. Instead of flat rate applications under or over-applying areas of the field, variable rate application precisely places your fertilizer inputs where it is most needed to maximize yield.

Aurora DataAdvantage – Your In-House Data Management Program

With the dawn, evolution, and refinement of precision equipment since the 1990s, you have collected years of GPS based yield maps, soil samples and other data. But, you probably feel like you have never truly used this data. Aurora DataAdvantage is the vehicle that puts your data to work, by transforming your raw field data into field and whole-farm knowledge, helping you get beyond “just the pretty map”. This analysis is based on your ACTUAL and OBSERVED field data. Ultimately, trust the recommendation, but let’s verify the results after harvest.

DataAdvantage offers a full suite of reporting and field tools to help you refine management across the farm and achieve your precision ag goals.

  • Variable Rate Seeding
  • Yield Map Analysis
  • Learning Block placement
  • Grid Sampling and Variable Rate Fertilizer Recommendations

Aurora DataAdvantage manages and stores your data in a highly structured and organized database, providing unmatched statistical analysis. You maintain full ownership and control of your data, as well as the knowledge created from the analysis.

At the Group level, DataAdvantage growers can choose to pool their data anonymously with hundreds of other fields and area producers to benchmark their own performance. The Aurora Group Data allows you to view trends and compare your operation from a higher level by analyzing fields and conditions that reflect your own situation. The strength of this knowledge, ultimately guiding better decisions, is the pathway to higher yields on your farm. </p

The Aurora Agronomy Team has taken a pro-active approach to providing solutions to combat the troublesome herbicide resistant weeds that our producers are facing. We have adopted our own key genetic line-up of Soybeans that are Liberty Link® tolerant. Aurora Agronomy has the expertise necessary to construct an agronomically sound herbicide plan from pre-emergence to post spraying with Liberty Herbicide® to take care of glyphosate “Round-up®” resistant weed species. The glufosinate molecule in liberty brings a unique mode of action to the table that affects nitrogen metabolism in weeds increasing the effectiveness vs. normal amino-acid inhibitors such as Round-up®. Applying multiple modes of action appropriately and before weeds emerge to start robbing yield is the key to success with effective herbicide programs and Aurora Agronomy has the equipment & “know-how” to get it done.
