    • Dave Schrock What Drives

      What Drives Dave?

      Dave had high hopes to take over his dad’s farm but when the farm crisis hit, it was sold. After starting his own construction, excavating and abatement company, Dave then started his own farm at age 40.

    • Dave Schrock Fertility Program

      Fertility Program

      Dave takes an active, hands-on approach with fertility by:

      • Broadcasting potash and adjusting pH levels with lime post-harvest
      • Applying P, N, micronutrients and biologicals (including BioPath®) which are banded at planting or applied with a Y-drop in-season
      • Paying attention to high-production corn, which may get up to four applications throughout the season
    • Dave Schrock Why Biologicals

      Why Biologicals

      “I saw biologicals take totally dead soil from these spills and with time – 18 months – that same soil would start to grow grass. I was intrigued to see how that could be applied to agriculture.”

      NOT FOR THE FEEBLE

      Dave Schrock recalled his childhood summers when chores wrapped up in early June and he spent the rest of the month fishing with his dad. Fishing didn’t make it on the June to-do list this year, though. Join Dave on the latest episode of Frontier Fields to hear about his start to this season.

      "Fifteen years ago, on May 4, I was in the hospital getting my heart transplant. There were so many things out of my control. That year we ended up planting a lot of crops in June. They turned out to be really good crops, so when I get grumbly about the rain, I just have to live it and see God’s goodness."
