PRS CropCaster® Cycle
Independent Agronomy Consultants guide producers through the annual PRS CropCaster® cycle, from initial consultation to a post-crop review. Independent Agronomy Consultants stay connected to producers throughout the year, allowing them to make profitable decisions after major weather events or condition changes.
The PRS CropCaster® cycle helps create several scenarios for producers to make choices about their crops and inputs. By updating the scenarios with relevant changes, producers can make informed mid-season decisions and a post-crop followup provides an understanding of their return on investment and a solid start to the next year.
The PRS CropCaster® cycle follows these steps:
It starts with an initial consultation to discuss a producers needs and introduce the PRS® technology.
Soil Collection & PRS® Analysis
Soil samples undergo Western Ag’s patented PRS® soil analysis for a highly effective measure of the soil’s available nutrients.
PRS CropCaster® Session
Professional Agronomy Consultants meet with the growers for a PRS CropCaster® session using Western Ag’s CropCaster® software.
Pre-Seed Follow Up
A quick Pre-Seed follow up will ensure things are on track and the PRS CropCaster® recommendations are still current.
Our Midcast step represents the in-season support we offer to help ensure everything is going as planned.
PRS® BackCast and Performance Review
After harvest, the actual nutrient application, climate conditions, and yields are input into the PRS CropCaster® software for a PRS® BackCast review. This critical stage allows you and your customer to compare the PRS CropCaster® recommendations to actual performance.
