Maple River Grain and Agronomy
MRGA Precision Ag started about 2 years ago. Based out of Casselton ND we offer zone sampling for anywhere from Alice, ND to Galesburg, ND and east to the Red River. We create zones based of off multiple years of NDVI Imagery, Yield Data, and topography. Our 3 zone sampling system allows us to test the highest producing areas to the lowest producing areas, but we also tailor the zones to the farmers desire and sample accordingly. While we’re not always saving money we’re adding a value to each acre that pays dividends in the long run.

Maple River Grain & Agronomy
For over 20 years, we have built our entire business around the idea that knowing what’s happening at the soil level offers the most control over input costs and allows farmers to make better management decisions.
During that time, we’ve developed and evolved one of the most complete, efficient and simple precision farming systems in the industry. Best of all, we built a system that has been proven over millions of acres and specifically designed to enhance the partnership between the ag retailer and their customers.
FieldReveal serves as the cloud-based hub for everyone involved in an operation – soil samplers, field scouts, agronomists, dispatchers, applicators, and, of course, growers. Accessible anywhere you have Internet connectivity, it ties everything together and lets agronomists spend more time in the field with the grower and less time in the office.

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.
