AG TECHNOLOGY

Rising fertilizer cost have made variable rate nutrient application a vital component in a profitable farming operation. First Farmers combines GPS technology with electronic control systems on our application equipment to provide “on-the-go” changes in rate and product. The grower only gets what the soil calls for in their management zones, reducing wasted nutrients and maximizing the fertilizer dollar.
