Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers Sets Pace for Agriculture Research
June 11, 2012
When it come to agriculture research, no one does it better than Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers (ACLF). The St. Johns, Mich. company is committed to developing the best possible seed growth in order to provide a healthy and quality food supply to families worldwide.
In 1993 ACLF developed the North Central Research Station located north of its Michigan home base. The company started with the goal to develop products but has evolved into so much more. Today the focus is to help farmers and ranchers develop the most productive crops across the United States.
The advances in research by ACLF have made great contributions to a wide range of farmers who produce traditional row crops to those who grow specialty fruits and vegetables.
Dr. Jerry Wilhm has been with Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers for 20 years overseeing the growth and development of the North Central Research Station. In that time he has been a part of many of the technological developments.
"We can now apply nutrition to a plant at any growth stage, this helps it to take full advantage of growth potential," said Wilhm, "That's really cool."
Dr. Wilhm also has an ongoing blog that discusses what he and the nine other agronomists are doing at the Research Station that includes plenty of pictures.
"I try to make it fun for people to read and learn," added Wilhm. It can be found at ncrsreserach.blogspot.com
The Bancroft and Cook families who started Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers are proud about playing a large roll in nutrient management for farmers and ranchers.
Albert Bancroft, son of the founder Troy, said, "We take research seriously. If farmers are not making money, then there is no support for growth in the United States."
This marks the second year that Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers is supporting the Furniture Row Racing/Farm American initiative. Please check out all they are doing to share the story of agriculture on their website www.agroliquid.com
