United Cooperative's Pulaski agronomy location is currently undergoing a massive overhaul, with upgrades anticipated to be complete by Jan. 1, 2013.
Changes in the overall appearance of the agronomy facilities, including new blacktop, will be complete by Oct. 1.
Increased dry-fertilizer-storage capacity will accommodate the crop-nutrient needs of United Cooperative's growing customer base.
"Other than cosmetic changes, the dry facility alterations include a larger urea bin and a larger conveyor on top of the facility to speed up the time it takes to unload trucks. This will help increase overall capacity and more efficiently accommodate the needs of existing and future clients," stated Eric Meek, United Cooperative northern district agronomy manager.
"There will also be a new, liquid, crop-nutrient, load-out building, with attached liquid storage, to improve our custom application capacities and serve our customers in an efficient matter," added Meek.
United Cooperative's agronomy division is one of the largest suppliers of liquid and dry fertilizer in the Midwest.
The agronomy upgrades at the Pulaski location will allow for greater expansion of quality services to consumers in northeast Wisconsin and upper Michigan.
