MFA has expanded the partnership between its precision agriculture programs and Adapt-N, a professional software tool that combines advanced crop modeling with soil-type information, field management data and weather to establish real-time nitrogen recommendations.
Adapt-N is now available to the entire MFA trade territory, giving growers the ability to leverage field data already available within the MFA system to generate unbiased and scientifically validated in-season, variable-rate nitrogen recommendations, said Thad Becker, MFA Incorporated precision agronomy manager.
Working in conjunction with MFA’s Nutri-Track and Crop-Trak programs, Adapt-N adds another layer of beneficial data for growers, he added.
“We strive to serve our members with programs that improve their farms,” Becker said. “We accomplish this by providing nutrient recommendations tailored to each farmer’s unique growing conditions along with critical in-season field observations and our overall commitment to environmental stewardship. Everything we do has sound agronomy behind it. When we provide a service or product, you can count on it. We are excited to offer Adapt-N to customers throughout our territory.”
Adapt-N is built on more than a decade of university research plus continuous, multi-regional, on-farm testing since 2011. Adapt-N is operated by Agronomic Technology Corp and owned by Yara International.
“The increase in MFA’s use of Adapt-N over the past several years and the expanding availability of the technology across its territory are further evidence of MFA’s commitment to driving profitable sustainability for its growers,” said Steve Sibulkin, who leads the Adapt-N solution team at Yara. “This is completely aligned with our aspiration to bring timely recommendations to farmers that help them maximize yield while minimizing environmental impact.”
