Service before the sale.

Farmers call FSC agronomy to pick our brains. We don’t mind because a conversation with one of our agronomists always moves beyond price shopping. 

Inputs—whether fertilizer or chemicals—don’t vary much from supplier to supplier. It’s our knowledge base that tips the scale. We have more agronomists in your area, which means you’re working with someone taking the time to understand your goals for your operation before recommending products.

Make FSC your first call and you’ll soon discover you don’t need to call anybody else. 


Anhydrous ammonia season has started. I will list a few agronomic points behind anhydrous applications. Nitrogen is a mobile nutrient in the NO3 form. The key factor in anhydrous application is to hold the nutrient in the stable form. Soil bacteria works on the anhydrous and convert the nutrient into the mobile form.

NH3   to   NH4   to   Soil & Bacteria   to   NO2   to    NO3

      1.   The soil bacteria are more active at higher soil temperatures. It is suggested that soil temperatures are 50 degrees F (or less) when we begin application. The FSC website has the daily soil temperatures by county.
      2.   N - Serve is added to anhydrous. This product works on the soil bacteria (reduce bacteria activity to allow the nitrogen to remain in the non-leaching form).
