Spring Planting - Are you Ready?

Mar 04, 2020

Over the past several months your agronomy team has been gearing up for another planting season. While some are tasked with prepping equipment for the spring rush, others are working to put the final touches on farm plans and working through financing with their growers. If you haven’t met with your Premier agronomist yet to get your seed, crop nutrients, crop protection products, custom application, and financing needs locked up, there is still a little time. Waiting until spring breaks to have these discussions only puts added stress and demands on you and our staff in a time when we should be focused on getting the crop in the ground.

If you haven’t secured financing for this year’s crop, your agronomist can review options available through Premier that can provide the prepay funds today and defer payments into 2021. Premier offers financing options through Secure by Winfield on seed as low as 1.5%, CFA for total crop input loans, and several options with John Deere Financial that many producers work with today. If you prefer, contact the main office (608-437-5536) and ask for David or Matt to review options and come up with a plan that best fits your situation. We can complete applications over the phone or set up an appointment to sit down together and come up with a plan to meet your needs. If you would like David or me to be involved in discussions with your lender, we can do that too! Just give us a call.

Your Premier agronomist’s primary goal is to help you reach your production and profit goals. Having the financing in place today will help everyone focus on maximizing yields and often uncomfortable discussions around credit and financing during the busy spring season. Don’t wait until spring, call us today!

Ready or not, here comes spring! I have a sneaking suspicion you’re ready for it. It’s been a long winter but we’ll be wearing shorts before we know it. It never ceases to amaze me how cold 40 degrees feels in the fall and how warm that same temperature feels in the spring.
