LIQUID STORAGE TANK PROGRAM

In order to assist our growers with on-farm liquid fertilizer products we would like to provide a way for our customers to own liquid fertilizer storage tanks.  This program is designed as a partnership.  We want our growers to have enough product on hand during the busy spring season; while minimizing our transportation time and costs.

  1. Glacial Plains Coop will deliver up to a 6,000-gallon- poly tank plumbed with a bottom bung and valve.  The cost of this tank will be straight line depreciated over a 5-year period at the grower's expense.  Glacial Plains Coop will purchase and deliver the tank. GPC will invoice the grower each year for 1/5th the cost of the tank.  If a grower would like to buy out the tank they may do so based on the number of years remaining on the contract.  Example: Tank cost is $3,000. 5-year straight rate is $600/year. Cost to buy out after 2-years use would be $1,800.
  2. Glacial Plains Coop is open to helping growers determine what additional pumps, meters or plumbing they may need; but this additional equipment would be at the grower's expense. We would invoice the equipment under normal invoicing terms, or financing program.
  3. The grower agrees to purchase his liquid starter and side-dress fertilizer from Glacial Plains Coop for 5 planting seasons. If grower does not purchase his liquid fertilizer needs from GPC this contract is due and payable in full for any remaining balance.
  4. The grower is responsible for any damage to the tank until this contract expires. The grower is responsible for any crop injury caused by cross contamination issues.
  5. The grower is responsible for all equipment maintenance; including winterizing pumps, meters, and plumbing.

Call Glacial Plains Cooperative at 320-875-2810 Murdock, 320-843-4820 Benson, 320-843-3949 Clontarf for any further questions or details.

N-Stabilizers

 

                                                  

Here are some photos of corn stalks coming from ground treated with a nitrogen stabilizer vs. not treated with a nitrogen stabilizer. Stalk health can be very important, especially late season and these pictures say a lot about what a nitrogen stabilizer can do to keep stalks healthier, longer. We have seen the best results from Instinct, which is either blended with UAN or impregnated on Urea, or N-Serve which is injected with ammonia. Both of these nitrogen stabilizers have an EPA label and have made their mark in the industry, plus we have had side by sides with good yield results in favor of these products. Give a call to any of our agronomy facilities in Clontarf, Benson or Murdock to find out more on these stabilizers and the benefits of utilizing them on your farm. Thank You
