Acre+ Precision Ag Manager, Frenchman Valley Coop
Wessels has been leading farmer-facing precision agriculture programs for more than 20 years, beginning at Cargill running its NextField precision program during the company’s foray into crop inputs. Currently, he is restructuring and building the Acre+ program at Frenchman Valley Coop in Grant, NE.
Over the years, Wessels was one of the first individuals to work with growers on grid soil sampling and variable rate fertility, then to have variable yield zones for fertility and then progress to variable rate seeding. He has always strived to provide what is the best program for the grower to receive the most benefit.
