New Seed Warehouse, Fertilizer Plant, Shop, Ag Chemical Storage, Offices
The new seed warehouse is housed in an existing steel building on the site. It has a new concrete floor, new overhead doors, and has been sealed against rodents and is contracted with a professional rodent control company for pest elimination. This building measures 50 feet wide by 160 long. There are future plans for a bulk soybean seed facility when farmer participation reaches levels which will demand that service.
Inside the new seed biulding the lighting is excellent and the Equity has installed new roof ventilation. There will be a small office/work space in the southeast corner by the walk in door, The seed treater and conveyers will be right next to this work space for efficiency. When coming for seed, a farmer will drive into the east door and load inside, then drive out the west end. There will be a computer inside the work space for quick and easy ticketing and product tracking.
Right off the interstate at the Ashby exit
This is the new indoor seed treatment unit. It involves a surge tank, conveyers, and a USC 800 treater.
This is where the new combination office/chemical warehouse/shop will be located. It will be just to the south of the fertilizer plant.
