United Insight™ is UFC’s branded, in house precision ag program that was created to help you maximize production across your farm. The vast improvements in technology have allowed you to capture advancements in equipment operations, data collection and management processes. The data you collect from your fields has much more potential than to produce a map. An in-depth comprehensive understanding of your data will assist you in making more informed decisions with your inputs and help decide which products are increasing the profit of your operation.

There Are Three Areas Of Focus Of Our Program:

  1. Help growers manage each acre of their land based on its potential

  2. Incorporate the collected data to make an informed decision

  3. Use in-season management to detect and assess crop health issues

Growing a good crop doesn’t end after planting. Protecting your fields against weeds, diseases, and pests is vital to reaching high yield goals. UFC offers a wide variety of crop protection products to tackle even the hardest and most difficult fields. Our staff is trained and up-to-date on the latest products that will help keep your field clean and healthy.  

Our agronomist will scout fields, along with an intern, to check if there is a weed or bug problem.  They will then work with you to make sure the program will fit your needs and your budget. That order comes to us at the chemical shed, either in Winthrop or in Brownton. We'll make sure that the application is done correctly.  

We believe that UFC offers what no other cooperative around here can. We strive to give you the best service no matter what the size of your farm, from a garden to a 20,000-acre farmer. We have what you need and we have the knowledge and experience to back it up!

Our team can help you with all sorts of different services, from custom spraying to aerial spraying. Your agronomist will give you a recommendation for what needs to get sprayed, we can either use one of our machines or we can spray your crops aerially.
