Over the weekend, we received 5 orders for soil probes. Soil testing is becoming very popular with the advent of precision ag programs and new software programs being released almost daily which use soil analysis data combined with climate data and nutrient application data.
Last fall, we thought we had a good inventory in place for soil probes. By the second week in September, we were completely out of soil probes and the back orders started to come in. In addition, the manufacturers could not keep up with the demand and we were delayed almost 4-6 weeks.
Another contributing factor to this situation is the fact that ag retailers are also purchasing large supplies for their clients and there is only so much demand out there.
My advice to you, is get your order in soon with a soil probe manufacturer or online at the Midwest Labs eStore Site.
