Helping Growers since 1998

Reduce costs, improve crop emergence and yield, and increase revenue per acre

Working one-on-one

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.

Soil Health

Balanced residue management promotes optimum residue levels to support overall soil health, organic carbon levels, fertility, and moisture requirements.

Cost Reduction

Balanced residue management reduces costs with fewer tillage passes, planter skips, and lower nitrogen fertilizer.

Improved Yields

Balanced residue management promotes faster and higher percentage emergence that improves yields.

Better Protection & Preparation

Balanced residue management provides quick field preparation for double cropping, and enhances crop protection and soil amendment activities.

Greater Focus

Focus your resources, equipment budget, workforce, and management skills on your high-value primary crops.

Increased Revenue

With balanced residue management, we pay you for the stover we harvest and remove, and you have fewer field preparation costs—all adding to a better bottom line.

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.

We’re more experienced

We’ve been harvesting crop residue on a commercial scale since 1998, and we harvest year-round.

We’re more responsive

We own and operate the largest fleet of the newest harvest equipment, allowing us to get in and out of your field quickly, whether you’re preparing for next year’s planting or you need a quick turnaround for double-cropping.

We keep our word

We work with you one-on-one to develop a residue removal plan that supports your soil conservation and farming goals, and we follow through with no surprises. Your field will be left as you expected it.

We provide consistent demand for your residue

Our customers require material year-round, ensuring consistent demand for your residue.

We offer a professional interface

We provide consistent payments, details, and documentation records you can count on.

We’re here for the long haul

Our staff understands the agriculture industry and supports a business culture that is based on building long-term relationships.

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

Many of our new growers first work with us on a trial basis, allowing us to harvest on one or two of their fields
