Using The Productivity Index

Dennis Berglund  |   December 17, 2012

As land that goes up for rent or sale, we have been receiving calls concerning the land’s productivity.


The Productivity Index (PI) can be a valuable tool for making these decisions….


It can also help make decisions on where to allocate resources such as fertilizer, crop type, drainage improvement, etc….


A field’s PI is associated with soil type and is difficult to determine without the aid of a computer….


Using a computer, we can determine the % of each soil type and weight the PI of that soil type to arrive at a PI for the whole field….


Give me a call (218-280-5733) if you would like to see the PI for a field, so that you can see how useful they are!
