Environmental Foot Print
Our responsibility as a producer to the earth and society is pertinent in perpetuating our agricultural livelihood. We will continue to be involved with the government and our community to ensure our viability.
Allam Farms has completed an Environmental Farm Plan, updated in 2020
Our farms utilize minimum tillage, which reduces erosion and increases longevity of the soil health by providing less disturbance to microbial and nutrient ecosystems
Every field we farm is soil tested regularly to ensure that the fertility is maintained or improved. Each soil test location is flagged with GPS, allowing us to return to exact spot each time a sample is taken. Samples are analyzed to verify that there is no “mining” any nutrients or unhealthy soil balance and gives peace of mind that the land is enhanced for generations to come.
Technological adoption increases our efficiency and at the same time reduces our environmental impact. The continued advancement of technology is important to the future success of Allam Farms.
Swath pro/sectional control shut off prevents over application of fertilizer and pesticides, which protects the environment, saves cost, and boosts yields
We continually look for ways to reduce our footprint on the ground we steward.
How We Farm – Typical operations
Typical operations begin in the spring as seeding starts in late April. We try to finish seeding operations before the 25th of May each year.
All fertilizer is applied in one pass, except for Sulfur fines. These fines are applied in the fall via floater; they cannot be mixed with our dry fertilizer as they can cause plugging and blockage issues in the air seeder.
Throughout the year crops are sprayed to reduce weed, insect and disease pressure. We pride ourselves on having clean fields with a vibrant competitive crop.
Harvest begins in late August and will continue until all acres are covered. Along with harvesting comes grain hauling, a large task to keep up with the high capacity combines we utilize.
After each acre is harvested we heavy harrow to distribute chaff and straw evenly over the field; this makes seeding the next spring easier and allows the debris from the previous crop (fertilizer) to break down evenly across the field.
