Our approach to agronomy

Agronomic expertise

We view agronomy and crop production through the lens of continuous improvement. Led by our production agronomist, we analyze, learn and adapt at every  stage of crop production. This means you receive the best quality product, cultivated with precision and care.

Choosing the right crops

We align our crop selection not only with what thrives on our tracts but also with your standards and specifications, specializing in identity-preserved crops (IP crops).

Field-by-field management oversight

We take a precision approach to agronomic planning and management, tailoring strategies to each tract’s unique requirements. This includes adaptable farming techniques, like continuous no-till to full tillage practices, for efficient, sustainable crop production.

Nutrient management

Soil fertility is key to resilient crops. We closely monitor and manage soil nutrients, ensuring a fertile foundation.

Sustainable pest control and water conservation

We understand the delicate harmony of nature and strive to maintain it. That means balancing productivity with land stewardship to safeguard our crops while caring for the planet.

Precision execution and traceability

Our commitment to consistency extends to every step of our operations, from our chemical batching system to state-of-the-art planting and application equipment. We also provide full traceability from seed to harvest, so you can be confident in the products you bring to your customers.

Historical growth patterns at our farm

Ups and downs are part of farming — but our overall growth story is one of success. For the past 20 years, we’ve consistently outperformed average county yields. The result? Better crops, grown efficiently and sustainably.

Frequently asked questions about our 
agronomy services

What types of crops does Weiland Farms specialize in growing?

While we excel in high-volume corn production, our real expertise lies in growing value-added specialty crops and alternative row crops and small grain crops, such as food-grade soy and millet. And we continually adapt to market opportunities to better serve our partners, such as producing foundational seed for small grains.

Our robust infrastructure, technology, people and processes enable us to offer a diverse crop portfolio to serve our customers’ needs. If there’s a specific crop you’re interested in, please contact us to discuss how we can meet your needs.

What are the benefits of working with Weiland Farms for IP crops?

You can rely on our expertise and commitment to quality, consistency and risk mitigation. We work closely with you to understand your specific requirements and tailor our specialized crop production services to meet them.

How do you ensure the quality and consistency of crops?

We operate on a philosophy of continuous improvement. This is implemented through rigorous quality control measures at every stage of crop production, from seed integrity and planting to harvesting and storage. We also follow ecological farming methods to promote soil health and crop vitality, mitigating risks associated with crop health and yield. We closely monitor our crops, which allows us to identify areas that need additional management.

How do you manage risk in your agronomic processes?

Risk management is an integral part of our agronomic practices. We adopt several strategic approaches, including:

  • Combating corn rootworm (CRW): Crop and hybrid rotation, strategic placement of corn traits and population monitoring allow us to manage CRW effectively, thereby bolstering the health and productivity of our corn crops.
  • Ensuring nutrient availability: Our nitrogen application strategy safeguards against shortages, securing the availability of this essential nutrient throughout the growing season.
  • Preventing crop injury: We stage our crops appropriately before applying herbicides and meticulously clean equipment when switching between crops.
  • Mitigating environmental impact: Our nitrogen management strategy in corn employs multiple sources and careful timing. This approach not only supports crop health but manages environmental impact.
How do you support sustainable and traceable farming?

Sustainability and traceability are at the core of how we operate as professional growers. We proactively maintain soil health, rotate crops, conserve water and carefully monitor environmental factors. And with experience in various systems, we can customize our approach to meet your sustainability goals. Additionally, we maintain thorough records to ensure the traceability of our crops, from seed to harvest.

How does your approach to agronomy align with the latest ag technology?

We pride ourselves on staying ahead of the curve in agriculture technology. Our team is continually learning and evolving to incorporate the latest research and farming technology into our practices. This commitment to innovation assures that your crops benefit from the most effective, efficient and sustainable farming methods.

Additionally, we also partner with ag startups and agricultural product development companies to test and refine their products. By collaborating with us, you’ll gain access to leading-edge practices that can enhance your crop quality and yield.
