Crop Monitor Program
What is Crop Monitor Program?
Our Crop Monitor Program (CMP) is a service offered to our
customers through Crop Production Services. CMP is the collection of
soil and plant samples at key growth stages or regular intervals. Years
of plant analysis data were used to establish preferred N, P and K
levels for maximizing crop production. Optimum levels for secondary
and micro-nutrients are shown on the report as well.
How does it work?
Collected plant samples are analyzed for various nutrients. Nutrient
levels are plotted on a graph throughout the growing season.
Threshold lines indicate optimal nutrient levels for the specific crop
growth stages at that point in time. Results are displayed in a easy-tounderstand
color-coded report allowing you to quickly assess the
nutritional status of your crop. You can then adjust your fertilizer
inputs to meet crop needs.
What is the significance of the threshold?
Plant nutrient levels change during a growing season. They have also
changed through the years, making many of the established
thresholds outdated and obsolete. We’ve spent the past three
decades taking plant samples and measured where the average fields
fall as well as the top producers. Our experience is reflected in the
thresholds. We have performed thousands of samples for many crops
over the past several years.
