Conklin's AgroVantage Crop Management System is a proven winner, according to crop producers that used the "total systems approach philosophy" and those that have gone on to become national and state champions in the National Corn Growers Association 2008 National Corn Yield Contest.

Producers won 71 state awards and 10 national awards. Conklin says the list just keeps growing every year as more of the top winners use AgroVantage products.

The AgroVantage System products maximize the return of your input costs, while capturing the genetic potential of your crops, the company said.

Jerry Cox, NCGA multi-class, multi-year winner, said, "We don't ever want our crops to have a bad day. We give the plants what they need, when they need it."

Cox has increased his average farm yield by at least 67 bushels per acre, since he switched to the AgroVantage system eight years ago.

The AgroVantage system can help you take the guesswork out of diagnosing the soil's nutrient requirements; determine proper application rates for nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, along with secondary and micronutrients; and utilize a complete soil-testing program from an independent national laboratory.
