Whether it is one building or an entire complex, we have the solution
Greenfield Agronomy Super Centers
Whether it is one building or an entire complex, we have the solution. Stueve Construction can design, build, and completely manage your agronomy project. We have relationships with equipment, automation, and electrical companies that allow us to seamlessly manage the many aspects of the project.
Chemical and Seed Warehousing
Stueve Construction’s custom-designed chemical and seed warehouses can be constructed of wood or steel. Depending on your needs, they can be separate or attached with a dry building, insulated or not. We have the expertise to design facilities for hazardous materials storage that will be safe and meet regulatory requirements. These warehouses can range from simple storage to a fully automated 24/7 liquid/chemical load out.
Stueve Construction can manage the project from concept to completion. Once preplanning is complete and construction begins, an on-site project manager will provide oversight and coordinate the project, working with Stueve engineers and outside contractors. All the while, you will receive status updates so you can sleep at night. We promise you a successful project that you will be proud of for years to come.
Talk with Stueve Construction about improving efficiencies at your operation with a modern agronomy center.
Improved technology and new demands of modern agriculture have changed the way North American ag retailers operate. Farmers continue to adopt more advanced and efficient technologies and require their crop input suppliers to keep up with them.
Additionally, bulk fertilizer blending has become a standard practice since the 1970s. The development of barge and unit train receiving systems has helped retailers maintain profitability. Many of the top ag retailers in North America saw the advantages of economies of scale and planned for it. Retailers have consolidated outdated and inefficient facilities and grouped them into one location. This hub plant, or agronomy center, is a logical management practice.
An agronomy center can house dry fertilizer, liquid plant food, crop protection, and seed. A Stueve dry fertilizer building will be functional, durable, and most importantly, a safe and clean workplace. Liquid storage and blending facilities may require special containment and environmental considerations. Some crop protection or other hazardous materials may require special storage, with heating systems or fire suppression.
Bulk and bagged seed storage facilities also need to be provide the correct environmental conditions and ease of access. Staff offices and mechanical shops are also a part of most centers. Larger facilities may offer grain receiving, drying, and storage.
Stueve Construction is the leader in the design and building of modern and functional agronomy centers. Facilities may be laid out on many acres of property — often with an eye toward future expansion. Stueve understands limitations with rail or river access, and will work to site the project for best access. Truck traffic patterns are also taken into account during planning.
Stueve Construction has worked on more than 1,300 fertilizer facilities in its 60-plus year history. We know and understand the particular needs and regulations associated with fertilizers, hazardous materials, Federal, state, and local building and safety regulations.
Stueve will work with your management team to design a custom solution for your unique needs. We can manage your agronomy center project so you don’t have to — putting our years of experience working with vendors, contractors, and regulatory agencies to work. And we’ll do it on time and on budget.
