Helping Farmers Make The Most Of Their Fields

Crop Protection & Nutrition

G-Mac's AgTeam strives to be leaders in crop production. We take pride in the knowledge that our Agronomy Team provides to our customers. We have a full range of crop protection products for your specific crop including herbicides, insecticides, fungicides and desiccants. We also provide on farm deliveries for your convenience. 

Applying the correct amount of fertilizer and other crop inputs will result in optimum yields. Perfect planning and analysis are of high importance. Good soil samples should be taken into account when making decisions. At G-Mac's AgTeam, we've got qualified employees who can help make these recommendations. 

Crop Nutrition

Custom Blending

We can make up dry fertilizer blends for your specific needs. We are also well equipped to make blends with ESN nitrogen, which has great agronomic benefits.

Bulk Fertilizer

G-Mac’s AgTeam is proud to invest in improving and providing the logistics needed to supply our customers with the bulk fertilizer they need. Products we carry include Alpine, 46-0-0, 0-0-60-0, 11-52-0 and many others.

Specialty Fertilizer

G-Mac’s AgTeam carries a wide range of specialty fertilizer product. To list a few: ESN, Super-U, MESZ, Supreme 85 and Tiger 90.

Soil Samples

Our agronomists take soil samples after harvest, then analyze the nutrient data. They then create fertilizer blends based on crop, target yield, and available nutrients.

Plant Tissue Analysis

If a plant nutrient deficiency is suspected, we can send a tissue sample away to the lab to find out what is deficient. Our agronomists then use the results to provide a recommendation on how to get that nutrient to the plant. 

Crop Protection

Biologicals

Rhizobium-based inoculant products have a long history as an important crop input when seeding pulses. Granular, peat, and liquid formulations of these inoculants infect legume roots to facilitate their nitrogen-fixing process through which pulse crops are able to derive a significant portion of their nitrogen demand from the atmosphere. The selection of inoculant products we have to offer at G-Mac's AgTeam is expansive. Whether you are looking for a single action inoculant, multi-fungal product with phosphorus solubilizing technology, or mycorrhizae-based inoculant, we will have a product option in your desired formulation.

Canopy Management

Evaluating plant stand establishment is an important practice that we use to help growers make crop management and staging decisions throughout the course of the season. We use plant stand measurements to back-calculate seed mortality, make reseeding recommendations, and evaluate the uniformity of the crop. Assessing the density and uniformity of a crop canopy throughout the season allows us to make more precise recommendations on water volumes and application timing of crop protection products.

Our Agronomy Team is skilled at building harvest management plans that best suit a specific field situation and fit into growers' overall farm operation. From swath timing to decisions about pre-harvest or desiccation strategies, we can help get your grain into the bin as efficiently as possible.

Disease & Insect Management

Controlling the environmental conditions that favour disease outbreaks or insect infestations may not be an option, but G-Mac's AgTeam can work with growers to develop preventative disease management strategies and recommend the appropriate insecticide applications when pests reach their action threshold. 

Weed Management

Having a complete set of field records plays an integral in planning for the upcoming season as it allows growers to reflect on the successes of the past season and better understand areas of weakness on their farm. We, at G-Mac's AgTeam, feel that "knowledge is power", and that's why keeping farm data records is so important. We have the ability to generate detailed reports that are useful for future reference and concise, effective planning. 

Seed Care

Seed Varieties

With new seed varieties being released every year, sometimes the choices can be overwhelming. Advancements in genetics and biotechnology continue to result in increased availability of high yielding varieties with specialized traits. Although there is no such thing as one perfect variety, our G-Mac's AgTeam staff can help you find the ones that are best suited to your farm. Whether it is canola, soybean, corn, or other packaged seed units, we have access to a diverse selection of varieties.

Seed Treatment

G-Mac's AgTeam carries a diverse line of fungicidal and insecticidal seed treatment products to help protect your valuable seed investment during the (often) harsh spring soil environment at the time of seeding. We have a comprehensive understanding of these seed treatment products and can help advise you on the appropriate combination of active ingredients, rate, and proper application techniques. Custom seed treating is available. 

Seed Testing

At G-Mac's AgTeam, we believe that seeding at rates to target optimal plant densities is one of the first and best steps to achieving high yields. Because not all seed lots are created equal, understanding what is going on inside the seed plays a huge role in determining not only how much needs to be seeded, but also if that seed lot should be planted at all. We partner with independent, accredited seed analysis laboratories to evaluate seed quality parameters such as germination, vigor, seed-borne pathogens, and thousand kernel weight. For your convenience, seed samples can be sent away for analysis at any one of our 13 retail locations and our seed-savvy staff is always available to help you interpret the results and develop a seed care plan that is right for your farm. 

Services

Custom Application

G-Mac's AgTeam has an experienced team to help you out on farm with the following custom application services:

  • Custom Application of Granular Herbicides
  • Liquid Fertilizer Floating
  • Dry Fertilizer Floating
  • Custom Seed Treating and Inoculating

Sample Analysis

At G-Mac's AgTeam, we understand that not everything important in crop production is apparent to the naked eye. Sometimes you must dig a little deeper to see the whole picture. That is why we offer a variety of sampling services through several third-party laboratories that are accredited to provide complete analyses of soil, tissue, water, seed, feed, or weed samples. Our knowledgeable staff can help you interpret the results and develop strategies to implement the data on your farm.
