JACKSON CENTER — The year 2017 wrapped up 59 years of service for Bambauer Fertilizer & Seed. With four generations and still family-owned and operated, Bambauer Fertilizer & Seed credits their continued longevity in the agricultural industry to quality products and most of all service to their customers. With three locations in New Knoxville, Jackson Center and Pemberton, they are serving farmers in seven counties with approximately 40 employees.

“While 2017 offered a variety of challenges for all in the agricultural industry with yet another year of unpredictable weather, harvest proved better than expected in regards to yields for area farmers. With the focus on better serving customers, Bambauer Fertilizer & Seed continues to invest in their customers, the agricultural industry and the community,” said said Mitch Bambauer, location manager.

His report continues:

Continued regulations for pesticide and fertilizer usage has farm operators seeking out the expertise of Bambauer’s for soil testing and fertilizer recommendations. With staff devoted to take on soil samples and recommendations, Bambauer’s is equipped to maintain their customers.

New in 2018 will be the partnership with ProHarvest Seeds. As an independent seed company, ProHarvest can source its genetics from multiple suppliers, allowing for a lineup that is even more diverse than those of the leading national brands. Bambauer’s is excited that with ProHarvest area farmers can count on getting the choices, the exceptional performance and the buying power they need to maximize their profit potential.

With investments in their facilities over the last several years, Bambauer’s has positioned themselves ready to better serve their customers and lead them into future changes in the agricultural industry. Additions of a fertilizer facility, expanded grain storage and handling systems as well as machinery upgrades and devoted employees, the team at Bambauer’s is dedicated to completing service in an effective and timely manner.

Research and innovation have always been fundamental components of Bambauer Fertilizer & Seed. 2017 marked the 10th year for their Research Center Plot in which 3rd party trials are conducted by Buckeye Ag. Testing. With 20 acres devoted to testing, there are numerous trials going on at the Research Center.

Additional insecticides, hybrids/varieties, innovative products, growth regulators, herbicides and Hi-yield systems trials area also tested each year. These trials confirm that the recommendations and products promoted by Bambauer Fertilizer and Seed will perform for area customers.
