Bill Northey Visits with IAS Board Members

Jul 02, 2021

Bill Northey, former USDA Under Secretary and Iowa Secretary of Agriculture joined the IAS Board of Directors this week to discuss relevant agriculture issues impacting IAS and our member owners.  We enjoyed the wisdom Bill shared from his past experiences as well as his outlook on Iowa Agriculture. The IAS Board of Directors regularly invests time for continuing education as part of their role to provide the best leadership possible for the IAS members and employees.

Soil sampling is a good start to any fertility program. Test results identify available nutrients in the soil, allowing you to address nutrient deficiencies and improve the nutritional profile of your fields!

For example, you may have one area that requires more lime than others. It does not make sense to put the same rate of product in both places, each with different needs. Proper nutrient management can help you budget in-field resources, optimizing your potential return on investment.

For more information, contact your local IAS location or agronomist.
