The Centrol Advantage


Centrol offers true Precision Ag flexibility.  Contact us below for more information.  All services and recommendations are completely unbiased and independent. 


Grid or Zone Soil Sampling

Soil Sampling with Centrol is a great way to discover if soil fertility is a yield-limiting factor in your fields.  Determining a fields soil fertility allows the grower to manage inputs more effectively.   A Centrol agronomist will meet with you and give a recommendation on which method of soil sampling and soil tests are best for each of your fields.


Variable Rate Fertilizer

Centrol offers a full turn-key solution that starts with soil sampling and ends with a prescription.  Work with an unbiased, trained agronomist that has your best interests in mind when creating Variable Rate Fertilizer prescriptions. Automatically put macronutrients and micronutrients where they are needed. We have 15 years of experience and are invested in making sure your prescription files work whether the spreading is done yourself or through a fertilizer retailer.  


Management Zone Creation

Creating Management Zones that group similar field characteristics allows for inputs to be used more effectively.  Data from Veris carts, multiple years of yield data, high resolution imagery, elevation, and soil data are tools Centrol consultants use to create zones with different growth and fertility needs.  Centrol consultants don’t stop there.  Results from these sources are also backed up by ground truthing and interacting with growers to make sure results from Precision Ag data match what is happening in the field.  Contact a local consultant to learn more about the many uses of Mangement Zones.  


Variable Rate Planting

Manage seed cost and maximize yield by putting the right hybrid in the right place at the right rate.  Variable Rate Planting is especially effective when combined with unbiased seed recommendations.  If your planter/tractor combo can variable rate, Centrol can make the prescription file.  


Data Discovery

Time to put your farm data to work.  Dust off yield and planting cards or link into the latest wireless data transfer.  Centrol provides recommendations assisted by data analytics software to make decisions on what to plant and what products to use.  


Nitrogen Management

Centrol can use management zones and soil testing to variable rate nitrogen across the field.  Growers receive recommendations on timing and application rates. Consultants monitor rainfall, weather patterns, and crop conditions for possible nitrogen needs.  Centrol also excels in providing intense nitrogen soil sampling for specialty crops such as sugar beets.  



Imagery Services

Centrol has access to high-resolution satellite and aerial imagery for viewing field health, spatially defining the size of known issues, or finding trends in the fields using sensors before they are visible to the naked eye.  Centrol is equipped to handle your Imagery needs.

What Makes Us Proud

“I have worked with Centrol for 23 years, and would not want to farm without them.”


Madison, SD

“There are a lot of decisions to make in farming. Hiring Centrol was one of the best I made. Besides maximizing my yields, the peace of mind on all the agronomic decisions my consultant does for me is priceless.”


Alexandria, MN

“I have worked with Centrol since 1999. During the growing season we have many tasks to manage. We are short on labor so having Centrol scout fields weekly helps manage weed and pest control. Hybrid selection, fertility and crop planning are very helpful. Data management has recently become a major benefit to working with Centrol. The more data we can collect has led to more accurate zone creation for VRT fertilizer and planting. I appreciate the unbiased advice the Centrol staff offers. Working with Centrol helps benefit the profitability of my farming business.”
