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!

I was caught in a snowstorm coming back from a hedging meeting in Inver Grove Heights, MN on March 26th. It was nice to see that someone is getting a little winter this year. By the time I got to Wisconsin Dells, all of the snow and ice clinging to my truck was gone and I was back in spring weather again. While our propane sales decreased this year, the bright side is that our wear and tear on our vehicles, equipment and employees declined as well. There’s always next year.
