Professional Agronomy Career Opportunities

I’ve been a Professional Agronomy Consultant with Western Ag for 12 years, sampling 150,000 acres and scouting approximately 30,000 acres annually using the PRS Technology. What I love about being a PAC with Western Ag are the results in yield and quality that I can help growers pull off! If anybody is passionate about agriculture and loves to help farmers make money, Western Ag is a great business to partner with.

WHO IS WESTERN AG?

Western Ag is a Professional Agronomy service company, powered by the award-winning Plant Root Simulator (PRS®) Technology. Western Ag provides an empowering, profitable and rewarding career opportunity for agronomists. Western Ag Professional Agronomy delivers the PRS Cropcaster® service, a complete crop selection, nutrition and yield forecasting service that empowers farmers with the knowledge to Grow More Profit.  

WHAT IS A PAC?

Professional Agronomy Consultants (PACs) are highly motivated professionals who work one-on-one with farmers to develop and implement a customized PRS CropCaster® analysis. To deliver quality Cropcaster® recommendations, PACs are current with best agronomic practices and enjoy advising and educating farmers. PACs work independently; but also form a Professional Agronomy Network supported by a General Manager, as well the entire Western Ag team of professionals.  

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN OUR NETWORK?

  • ACCESS TO OUR AWARD-WINNING PRS® TECHNOLOGY AND BUSINESS MODEL: The combination of award-winning science (PRS® Probes and PRS Cropcaster® services) and the award-winning delivery model (PRS Cropcaster® Cycle) creates an immediate, sustainable advantage for Western Ag’s PAC network.
  • FLEXIBLE WORK ENVIRONMENT: Set your schedule and your income generating potential. PACs are awarded with significant flexibility to achieve their independent business’ performance goals; PACs also experience significant time off in the off-season.

  • BASE COMPENSATION AND ADDITIONAL INCENTIVES: A competitive commission model provides significant earning potential. Additional incentives may also be available.

HOW DO PACs HELP FARMERS?

  • AGRONOMICS: Through implementing a customized PRS Cropcaster® recommendation, farmers optimize crop returns by catering crop selection to the field, through evaluation of crop economics, and by using a balanced fertilizer blend. The resulting synergies enhance crop productivity with customers seeing significant yield increases.
  • ECONOMICS: By focusing on optimizing yields and maximizing profits, Western Ag applies the ‘law of diminishing returns’ and empowers farmers to Grow More Profit.
  • EDUCATION/EMPOWERMENT: As professional consultants, PACs are also educators. PACs present the options, farmers make the decisions and, collaboratively they produce a plan. Eighty percent of our customers feel that the PRS Cropcaster® tool is an empowering farm management decision support option (Integrow Study 2010).
