AGRONOMY www.midcountycoop.com LATE SPRING Page 3 Late spring means a smaller plant- ing window. A smaller planting window means everyone wants their fertilizer at the same time. To help us continue to deliver the top-tier service you have come to expect, please communicate early and often with us about your plans for planting. How many acres will Scott Nelson Agronomy Manager you plant today, tomorrow? We will put (952) 466-3733 together a plan that keeps everyone scottn@midcountycoop.com rolling! To ensure proper placement on the schedule, please call the office directly with fertilizer orders at 952-466-3730. We continue to invest in the future! We have made some substantial additions to our equipment fleet. Pleased to announce the arrival of our new dry fertilizer applicator. The John Deere 4940 chassis has all the newest in technology and the New Leader MultApplier is the best on the market. What does this mean for you? A machine that spreads fast and accu- rately, which will again help keep your tires turning in the field. To keep up with this new applicator we purchased another fertilizer tender truck. We also purchased a front end loader which will allow us to continue delivering and spreading lime in an efficient and timely manner. We’ve upgraded our chemical impregnation system in the fer- tilizer plant - entire system can be run from the fertilizer office, which will improve our efficiency of getting fertilizer to the field. Have a safe spring. RECIPE: ZIPLOC OMELETS HOLIDAY ® STATIONSTORE - RUNNING STRONG vehicle cleaned. As always, when you purchase gas, you get $1.00 off a car wash.
