Precision Partners, Inc.

Precision Partners, Inc. was established in 1997 with a focus on delivering easy to use and effective precision ag. based tools to Agronomy Companies and Crop Consultants throughout the US. Precision Partners’ ProfitZ.nutrients Fertility Management Program saves fertilizer cost and improves yield and quality. ProfitZ.nutrients uses numerous data sources including remote sensing to create a virtual yield map for any field. This map defines the range of yields that exist in that field for corn, wheat, malt barley, edible beans, and potatoes. Data such as EC, topography, and OM/soil types can be used to enhance the process. With ProfitZ.nutrients a management zone map can be created that allows the user to soil test in the zones and apply the soil test results back to the Fertility Plan. A variable rate application can then be made for any Variable Rate Controller. Precision Partners provides software to be successful delivering Precision Ag programs to your grower.
