We, at Paulman Farms, believe that feeding the world is our true calling; our values guide us to seek the truth, guided by scientific fact, logic, and reason, to help us continue to innovate to meet that goal. Here are some of the ways our farm uses innovative technology to serve our clients and remain good stewards of our land:
Cloud based accounting for business and field level records
Conservation plans in place, geo-referenced soil testing, in season tissue sampling
Depending on desired crop, prefer no-till/strip-till
Each field, by crop, go through a rigorous evaluation of the availability of nutrients. All fields are in a three year compost program, utilizing beef and poultry litter that is variable rate applied according to soil test results. Currently cover crops are being evaluated in our system for soil heath improvements. All applied nutrients are “spoon fed” according to the in season growth stage.
Corn (yellow & white both non-gmo and gmo), Soybeans (all types)
Popcorn (yellow and white), Dry edible beans (black turtles, pinto, navy, great northern, light red kidney, pink), Hard red winter wheat, Soft red winter wheat, Chia, Canola, Yellow field peas, Sunflower (confection & oil), Sugar beets, grain sorghum, potatoes
100% no-till, GPS, variable rate seeding matching the native field conditions to the genetics of the plant.
All fields have been mapped for water holding capacity. Have 3 scientific grade weather stations to provide real-time plant evapotranspiration numbers to match the plant with soil and site specific water application prescriptions. Variable rate water applications are applied to all irrigated fields.
Our AgSense farm was featured in this AgSense video:
All fields are under a certified agronomist and are expected to “ground truth” all applied technologies. Each field is monitored by satellite imagery.
Each crop is handled tenderly as we are very proud to put our “stamp” on every morsel. Harvest is captured in real-time mapping and a very comprehensive inventory software utilized.
We have storage facilities and cloud based individual bin monitors that can optimize natural curing for long term storage and capture better marketing opportunities
We have our own truck fleet and access to many options domestically and internationally, including limited rail access
