It's very rainy here in Central Missouri at the moment. We've already had 7 inches of rain here over the weekend and are projected to get another 5 between today and Friday. Feel sorry for those to the South of us. Yes, our rivers are supposed to go up, but all that water has to go South on the Mississippi river.

Anyways, what's your occupation, or what do you do for a living? I work for MFA Agri-Services out of Elsberry, MO. MFA is a multi-state Agri-Service that has stores in every state that surrounds Missouri with the exception of Illinois, although we service every state around us.

My title is Precision Agronomy Specialist. I take care of getting ground soil sampled, specifically grid sampled where we are taking a sample bag of dirt every 2.5 acres, rather than a single bag over say 50 acres. The lab will test the soil and give me back the results that our computer program looks at and then gives you a variable rate fertilizer (and lime) recommendation. Usually, you don't use any less fertilizer than you were going to use before, but this puts it where the crops will get the most benefit. I also sell, install and service the equipment that goes in our fertilizer spreader trucks to make them capable to do that variable rate spreading, along with GPS guidance, auto-steer, yield monitors for combines, tile plow/ water management automation, planter monitors/ clutch control.

Just thought I would see what everyone else did for a living.
