We have been working with 360° for eight years. The services and information are essential to our farm.
We do not have the time or expertise to do the crop scouting ourselves. We know that 360° is checking our fields for weeds and diseases and will inform us of the right chemical to use, at the right time.
We run a 2000 head feedlot which means there is a lot of manure to spread. By soil testing and variable rating the nitrogen there is no crop lodging and a more even stand.
Not only are there higher yields, but there is also a saving on fertilizer that the crop does not require.
Last but not least are the environmental issues. To ensure the right to farm we will need help from people like 360° to help us deal with the rules and regulations enforced by government.
The cost of 360° Ag Consulting’s services is offset by cleaner fields, higher yields, and a savings on fertilizer.

When my farm implemented a variable rate fertility program with 360° Ag Consulting, I was uncertain it was going to pay for itself. But now, I know I am putting fertilizer where it is needed not over applying where it is not needed. The environmental aspect of proving where you are putting your fertilizer is coming and this is one way of providing proof.
I am a one man operation and do not have time to manage everything. I rely on 360° staff to ensure my field management is thoroughly done, they are an extension on my farm – my hired man.
Having an agronomist keep an eye on my crops through the growing season allows me to go away with my family in summer if time allows. I can enjoy that time without having to worry about what is going on at home.

360 Ag Consulting has been working with our farm VR fertility program for over a decade. During this period, we have experienced increased yield stability, precision fertilizer efficiency and long-term building of key nutrients on our farm. This partnership has allowed us to achieve our core beliefs of maximizing the production on every acre of our farm by using key nutrients most efficiently for long term sustainability.
The dedication of 360 Ag employees and “boots on the ground” focus they uphold everyday are what sets them apart in the ag consulting industry. Corners are never cut and they delivery the most up to date advice and recommendations for an ever-changing agricultural world.
With the help of 360 Ag Consulting, Johnston Farms is set up today and for future generations by building the most important resource: long term sustainable soil health!
