Agronomy Ensures Agriculture's Future

Posted: Updated:

When it comes to farming, there are numerous factors that can affect the outcome of a growing season. But there are steps people can take to help ensure a successful year. Whether it's with neighbors, friends or local agronomy companies, making strong connections can help when it comes to advice and products for the agricultural year.

Agronomy is the science of soil management and the production of field crops. It's a practice vital to the success of farmers across the country. Whether it's advice on chemicals, fertilizer or crop rotations, companies like Scheresky Ag just north of Max, play an important role throughout the agricultural year. 

"We have 15 full-time employees, and 10 part-time employees, and it's all about what the employees can do for us and for the customer. We've got a good group of customers that come to us and talk to us. If we can help a farmer grow and make money, that's what it's all about," says the owner and operator of Scheresky Ag Galen Scheresky.

In its 15th year, the family owned and operated the agronomy company serves farmers in the Max area. From crop scouting to field application, a high level of trust can save farmers both time and money.

"We like to be in agriculture, we like to be out in the field, all my employees love to be out in the field and that's what's great about it," says Scheresky.

And it's the connections between farmers and the agronomy partners that can lead to a successful year.

"As we compare the number of farmers dropping and the number of vendors serving farmers, those relationships take on an entirely different level. They're not picking in choosing in my area or up here between seven or eight different vendors. You want people you can trust, and you want recommendations you can trust. You want to make sure things happen as you expect them to happen," says John Phipps a writer for the Farm Journal.

And creating a family environment on the farm, at the elevators, and in agronomy offices will help to ensure a bright future for agriculture.

"We my hope for the future is that we can keep the farmers going and be in business 30 years from now, and have all my farmers in business with me.  I want us to all be prospering and doing well," Scheresky said.  Phipps added, "What maintains us, our true safety-net is the connections we have with our peers and with our neighbors and with our friends.  Every time we get a chance to get together and strengthen that, that's the one that counts."
