"INCREASING OUR BOTTOM LINE BY USING IT"

WHY AGRICULTURE?

"I chose agriculture because it's in my blood or I'm fulfilled to get up in the morning and already be at my job, and we put in long hours, but it doesn't really feel like work. It's just my way of life. It's just nice to spend the time with your family growing crops, and that's what I'm passionate about."

BRAD’S PROFILE

"My name is Brad Fife. I farm in southern Ontario. I farm with my family, my brother, and my dad. My family has been farming in that area over a hundred years. I'm the fifth generation and we farm corn, soybeans, wheat. We grow alfalfa. We also grow peas and lima beans for Bonduelle."

APPLICATION IS KEY

"We have used the liquid product and the granular product and the peat product. We've had good results applying all three. It's just a matter of which planter we're using at the time. That's the nice thing about the AGTIV® products is: it's flexible and there are many options to applying it, and I'd say application is key, so, depending on the piece of planting equipment, we choose the right product and it is simple to apply." 

BENEFITS OF USING AGTIV®

"Premier Tech and their AGTIV® products have helped our crops do well in dryer years, and specifically some of our specialty crops like the peas and the lima beans, they seem to do better with the increased root mass and [it] helps absorb the nutrients better and you can see it in the fields. When the plants are doing well, you know that the AGTIV® is helping.

We are very happy with the results we've seen using the AGTIV® product in our crops. We see healthier plants in many different weather conditions […]"

"We know that it's increasing our bottom line."
