"Attending Pro Ag I training has been the single best investment we have made in our farming operation. This training is nothing like your typical seminar where you are there to be sold products; it includes ideas, concepts and practices not covered in other ag-related training programs or courses. I believe anyone who attends Pro Ag I can gain as much as $15 to $30/acre by simply incorporating solid farming practices. The information presented to you and the knowledge you gain at Pro Ag I will have a positive effect in the way you approach making decisions in your farming operation."
Lane A.

Pro Ag 1 is an excellent program where growers can keep up to date on information that can be immediately integrated in their operations to fine tune farming practices, improving profitability. Managing existing technologies is becoming paramount with increasing government and societal pressure to control run-off nutrients to ensure nutrients are being utilized in yields, not slipping away.

Pro Ag 1 sifts through the fluff and gets right down to the fundamentals of what is proven, economical and makes sense for each grower. If you are serious about a minimum return of $10 - $20 per acre, this is a great opportunity to attend; it may be the best investment in your operation on a yearly basis. In fact, I have attended Pro Ag 1 eight times, I have found even minor tweaks to every operation have led to overall increased yields and net profitability.

I attended my first Pro Ag 1 in 2016. It was an excellent program where I learned information I was unaware of to make better decisions in my farming operation. I would encourage any farmer to take part in this training, you will learn things to try on your farm to improve your yields and plant health development.
Richard P.

I did not know what to expect attending for the first time. I found the program very informative and will be useful in the future. Pro Ag 1 provided very informative information that will definitely be beneficial in my operation. I hope to better manage input costs and improve my yields for a 20% improvement combined. I have not done a lot with the AgroVantage products yet, but I am really impressed with Conklin's Vehicle Products. What I have used worked! I believe a lot of the Conklin Ag products should help my bottom line. It would be fun harvesting high yield corn and soybeans!

Receive a full-blown soils/fertilizer clinic in two days by attending Pro Ag 1. I attended my first program and found several ways to improve my fertility program. I plan to switch to Conklin liquid for my entire farm. I encourage any farmer to attend and discover new ways to improve their farm, fertility program, yield and bottom line.
Wyatt S.
South Dakota
I attended Pro Ag 1 for the first time in the fall of 2016; it was an excellent program where I learned a lot of little things that will produce bigger yields. Some specifics were the loss or usability of fertilizer when the pH is not neutral. There are practices and products that can be used to cut the cost per BU to become more profitable - not necessarily the most yield, but the least cost per bushel.
Larry F.
Minnesota
I attended Pro Ag 1 for the first time in 2016 and feel the program was excellent! I was like a sponge and soaked up as much information as possible, the notebook and several pages of notes will be great for me to reflect on the information covered. I have an optimistic mindset for the next planting season. I have confidence in receiving reliable soil tests broken down into simple terms, making the data easy for me to read and follow. These soil tests will be huge for me, I will have access to them and able to make adjustments myself and not have to have an interpreter.

I am very interested in all the AgroVantage fertilizer and micro-nutrient products.

"I treated a portion of my soybean field with Roundup® and the rest with Roundup mixed with one pint/acre of Conklin's Feast® Micro Master and Secondary Nutrient Chelated Manganese. When I harvested the field diagonally, I noticed the yield monitor jumped eight BPA where I'd applied the Chelated Manganese and dropped 8 BPA where I hadn't."
Paul S.

"The ease and simplicity of applying the Kip Cullers' Nutrient Compass Foliar Fertilizer®, not to mention my return on investment, makes this one of the go-to products on our farm. The first year I used Kip's product, I noticed tremendous results right away. The Kip Cullers' Nutrient Compass Foliar Fertilizer applied at V3-V5 showed an 11 bushel response."
Todd H.

"We use Conklin's Wex® on every acre we plant because it makes our chemicals work better. We see a 5-to-6-BPA yield boost, and we have fewer problems with foaming and tips plugging with Wex in the tank mix."
Jerry C., Multi-winner, Multi-class NCGA National Champion
Missouri
"Our growers have consistently seen better weed control and lower costs since using Conklin's AgroVantage System. We use one of the AgroVantage tools to determine the rate of adjuvants such as Complete, Kombind®, Knock Out and Bull's-Eye® to be used with Glyphosate. We have decreased the adjuvants costs by $1 to $1.50 per acre; that is a substantial savings and great weed control."
Mark F., CCA
Minnesota

"Since adding Conklin's Feast® Side-Kick®, 8-24-0, micronutrients, Wex® and Pro-Serve® to our fertility program for pastures, grass hay and Bermuda grass, the tonnage and quality has increased. Pro-Serve and Wex help improve color and allow hay to be put up sooner increasing the retail value. A good Bermuda grass has a Relative Feed Value (RFV) of 85. Prior to using Conklin's products, my RFV was 96; since including the AgroVantage products in my program, my average RFV has increased 30 to 125%!"
Paul A.

"Over 20 years of soil testing and foliar feeding alfalfa on nonirrigated soil in southeast Ohio, we've seen a 30% yield increase with Conklin's AgroVantage System. We produce an average of 8 tons and a top yield of over 10 tons per acre. Foliar feeding with X-CYTO®, Feast® fertilizer and micronutrients gives our crops better leaf-to-stem ratio, higher relative feed value, more digestible fiber and increased protein content."
Buddy M.

In 2015, a farm trial was done on a few acres where Kip Cullers' Nutrient Compass Foliar Fertilizer® was added to a foliar application on beans, which increased yield 5.1 BU, returning an outstanding ROI in a very wet year. These results led to including Kip Cullers' Nutrient Compass Foliar Fertilizer in our 2016 program on 1,000 acres - just leaving check strips for comparison purposes. We saw a solid net return with a 3.5 yield increase; this technology is here to stay!
Shannon T.

I used Conklin's Feast® Chelated Manganese with Feast 8-16-11 w/2S and Rain-Fast® with my glyphosate application in soybeans. The beans maintained a better color where the manganese was used. Watching my yield monitor, the result I saw was 4-5 BPA, with no other changes in the chemical mix.
Joseph M.
Iowa
By just adding I pint of Feast® Chelated Calcium in row with a splitter to my soybeans, I saw 1.1 BU difference. Check was 60 BPA and adding calcium the yield was 61.1 BU. I find calcium increases the nodules in my soybeans and fine root hairs in both corn and soybeans. Calcium is a natural growth stimulant promoter. I will not plant a crop without using Conklin's Feast® Chelated Calcium at a 1-pint rate in furrow. After each cutting of alfalfa, I apply 1 pint of foliar calcium to my alfalfa. By applying Side-Kick® 0-0-25 w/17S in row to my corn, it consistently gives me 6BU increase! Soil X-CYTO® added in furrow to my soybeans at 10 oz./acre yields 2 - 10 BU.
Steven B.

We have tested Amplify-D® in our test plot for seven years now and it has consistently averaged 7-8 BU increase. With this increase, it goes on 100% of our corn, no questions!

I have used Guardian® Nitrogen Additive for over 20 years. Guardian has made or saved me more money than any one thing I have used on my farm.
Larry F.
Minnesota
A farmer I work with began to use the Conklin AgroVantage® products in in 2010. He has a corn/soybean rotation and uses 5 gallons of 32% and a quart of Wex® with his burn down. On his corn, he applies 6 gallons of 8-16-11 w/2S with the planter. He then applies 25 gallons of 32% with Guardian® at the 5th - 6th leaf stage. The first year he used Guardian, he ran out of solution on the last five acres, the difference was 27 BU. He also uses Rain-Fast® and Kombind® when spraying post emerge applications.

In the last four years, he has experienced his best yields using the AgroVantage products, as he has averaged over 200 BPA with the three-year county average of 187. He is very happy with this increase, in fact, he has achieved soybean yield of 78 BU, which is 15 BU over the 63 BU-county average.
