Accredited Recommendations

The EPL Agronomy Team provides growers with recommendations based on two things. Number one is our accredited laboratory data (NAPT). And the Second is impartial university backed recommendations for your operation. We do not push products, we only report the data.

Soil Sampling

The first step in any laboratory analysis is the sample collection. In order to give you the most accurate results EPL can offer, our Agronomy Team participates in continuing education so they maintain the knowledge and experience to know when, where, and how to pull tissue and soil samples. We have the ability as resources to preform grid samples on your operation or zone sample based on your needs and/or requests.

Drone Scouting 

Drones are becoming a more reliable and useful tool in agriculture as a way for growers and agronomists to identify crop issues before they become systemic. As applying inputs through the growing season becomes more necessary, the use of NIR technology in partnership with the laboratory data will continue to pay dividends for the producers that utilize the technology to make smart decisions for their operations. 

Plant Tissue and Soil Sample Seminars

#CropQuestions

Out East Prairie Agronomy Team will be offering sampling seminars and field days to help producers understand the different ways to properly collect and prepare samples for the lab. We will also be teaching you the correct timing and method for tissue and soil sampling to give you the most accurate results.
