Premium Package in Detail

Pre-Season Planning

Pre-Season Planning

We will conduct a full analysis of your paddocks including soil type, historical inputs, rotations, last season’s results, high and low performing crops and any specific challenges.

We also take note of your labour availability as well as machinery.

We will then discuss your farming goals and expectations for this year and subsequent years so we get a clear picture of what you are wanting to achieve and where your business is heading.

You’ll then receive our Premium Client Planning Pack tailored to your farm that will set you up for the year including:

  • A comprehensive crop rotation plan for a 5 year period
  • Paddock maps that are colour coded to identify crop and variety
  • A full budget of presumed maximum expenditure for the calendar year
  • A herbicide rotation plan by crop
  • An analysis of your soil test results
  • Best practice management design by crop and variety
  • Nutrient budget
  • Total maximum input summary for the season
  • Cashflow statement, Gross margins & break even analysis
  • A post harvest review which is a critical assessment to be able to plan effectively for next season, plus a stubble management plan
  • A planting timetable to establish critical start and finish dates for specific crop and variety
Planting

The most critical operation of the season which requires careful planning and monitoring. PY Agronomy will work with you from start to finish, providing advice on planting depths based on moisture availability, pre emergents, knock downs, and adjustments to rotations based on current and predicted conditions.

Crop Monitoring

Regular visits are essential to keep on top of weed control and any issues. These visits are highly dependent on crop type and issues present. We access your paddocks via quad bike, and you will be sent a notification of the visit and recommendations of follow up required.

The key stages include emergence, early growth, mid growth, reproductive phase, maturity & fallow period. All important stages that require expert advice to ensure you reach your production goals. Recommendations are sent from Back Paddock program and are easy to read, and simple to follow.

Harvest

We will assess your paddocks and discuss yield potential, and identify any weed and disease issues that must be considered in the cropping plan for the following year.

You will also receive my PY Agronomy Harvest Audios where I will be talking about yield, grain quality and grades, marketing opportunities and a general update of the harvest as I see it happening. These audios will be sent to you at least weekly.

Post Harvest

We will conduct a review of your yields, discuss any learnings from the season, identify any issues to be included in plan for next

PY Agronomy Audios

You will be emailed a link that will take you directly to the current PY Agronomy audio – these audios are designed so that you can listen to them on the go, whilst sitting in your ute having smoko, on the tractor or in the office.

These audios are commentary from PY Agronomy about what we’ve been seeing in the paddocks, what other farmers are up to in the district, upcoming issues to be aware of, opportunities and events. These are an easy way for you to be kept informed with topical issues in your area.

You will receive the 5 audios listed below, giving you the knowledge and information you need, when you need it!
