Helping Growers since 1998
Reduce costs, improve crop emergence and yield, and increase revenue per acre
We work one-on-one with each grower, year-by-year and field-by-field, to develop a residue harvest program that supports their specific harvest and rotation activities and timing—all the while meeting long term soil management goals.
We practice sustainable harvest residue removal, and our own precision standards are stringent enough to meet land and soil conservation requirements of the National Resource Conservation Service.
Based on years of experience
Our residue management program is based on years of experience working directly with growers. We determine with each grower, field-by-field, the right amount of residue to harvest to ensure moisture and soil protection needs are met while optimizing the effectiveness of tilling, inputs and emergence.
What makes us different
Pacific Ag is the first and only national company focused on harvesting crop residue. Now operating in 10 states, we harvest 12 months a year, moving our fleet of equipment around the country.
The Importance of Harvesting the Right Amount of Residue on Your Field
Too much residue
- makes tillage more difficult and expensive
- interferes with planting operations and emergence
- slows the warming of soils
- reduces yield due to immobilized nitrogen
- can be a source of pests and pathogens
- adds to crop protection costs
Too little residue
- hurts soil moisture retention
- reduces soil fertility
- diminishes organic matter
- weakens soil structure
- increases risk of blow
