At Houff's, we understand the role of sound agronomics when it comes to producing quality crops.  Whether you are interested in raising premium forages to maximize milk production, or in producing quality grains to sell in the open market, you can count on Houff's agronomic consultant staff to deliver knowledgeable service that will guide you through the growing season from pre-plant to post-harvest.    With the help of current soil samples, accurate GPS field maps and your crop history records, you can count on your Houff crop consultant to bring comprehensive crop management to your farming operation. 


A custom soil sampling ATV give us the ability to pull accurate soil samples even when the ground is too dry and hard for conventional soil probes.
Our season begins months ahead of planting time with the collection of field history and current soil samples.  Knowing soil fertility levels and past management practices are the first step in making any agronomic decision.  We pull soil and manure samples on your farm and send them to independent, certified laboratories for timely and accurate analysis, and use those results to make informed recommendations that are tailored to the specific characteristics and needs of your farm. 

Houff field representatives make accurate information the cornerstone of every agronomic recommendation.  With several of our agronomists holding Certified Crop Advisor certifications through the American Society of Agronomy, you can count on our staff to stay current with university and corporate research that can improve crop protection and boost yields on your farm.  Couple that education with decades of experience, and you can't find a more capable sales staff in the valley!
