Auburn Bean & Grain Co.

Auburn Bean and Grain Co. is an independently owned and
operated business since 1970. Consisting of facilities in Auburn, Hemlock,
Oakley and Standish, MI – Auburn Bean and Grain Co. services farmers throughout
the entire Saginaw Valley region of Michigan. It provides inputs such as seed,
crop protection and nutrient, as well as, up-to-date grain handling facilities.

4R nutrient stewardship is a responsible
outline on how the fertilizer business needs to be. Auburn Bean & Grain consumers
live and work in the Saginaw Bay watershed system and 4R applies to all
customers when developing their farm management plans.

Auburn Bean & Grain has an advanced GIS
platform, which offers variable rate mapping, recommendations and application
by trained personnel to consult customers on their production acres to put
nutrients where they are needed.

With fertilizer being more than 50% of
our agronomy business, Auburn Bean & Grain offers only the highest quality
nutrient products and custom blends prescribed by Certified Crop Advisers based
on sound soil science practices. Rather than over-applying nutrients to
maximize production, plant-tissue testing is being used to prescribe in-season
nutrients that are in high demand.

Auburn Bean & Grain have a
comprehensive list of controlled-release-nitrogen and N-stabilizing products that
keep applied nitrogen available to the plant prior to or during the growing
season. Furthermore, split applications of nitrogen is encouraged during spring
months to maximize crop utilization and minimize nitrogen loss. Other products
that follow 4R nutrient stewardship are low-use-rate banded phosphorus row
starter and foliar-applied nutrients.
