Kaiser Family Farms

A lot has changed since the Kaiser family started farming along the Missouri River in North Central Missouri in 1891. But one thing has remained consistent – extensive on-farm validation of new technologies.

Some of the most productive farmland in Missouri is found in the fields that wind their way across the state along the banks of the Missouri River. For fifth generation farmer Marc Kaiser, the key to his successful farm is careful evaluation and implementation of evolving agronomic management practices with the goal of increasing the soybean yields on his family’s land. In addition to farming, Marc is an active participant in Perry Agricultural Laboratory and runs an agronomy consulting business with his wife, Meagan. With his Supplement Your Soybean field trials, Marc seeks to fine-tune the sulfur and nitrogen application timing in order to achieve higher soybean yields in his test fields

Made in Missouri

Marc Kaiser farms in North Central Missouri, where a 50/50 rotation of corn and soybeans are often found. With a farm located along the Missouri River, the Kaiser family is no stranger to battling Mother Nature. Most of the family’s 4500 acres were under water in 2019 and not farmed. The current and next generation of Kaisers are resilient and bring with them a determination to succeed and grow production in spite of any hand Mother Nature can deal.

With a background in agriculture lending combined with experience working alongside his wife operating a soil lab, Marc knows the value of planning, data and technical analysis of field trials – all the while keeping a focus on the return of his investments.

By the Numbers

When Marc first enrolled in the Supplement Your Soybeans program in 2021, he felt strongly about conducting the trials for at least three consecutive years to generate adequate, actionable results. Now heading into his third year in the program, Marc is honing in on which specific soils and locations ammonium sulfate (AMS) impacts crop health and yield most significantly.

For this year’s trial, Marc and his family selected an 80-acre test field that has thinner soil that he feels has the greatest potential for seeing a yield bump from an AMS application. The test field will also include a row spacing of 15 inches and a population of 125,000 seeds per acre. Marc hopes to see the average soybean yield hit 90+ bu/ac on his ammonium sulfate–treated acres.

As a fifth-generation farmer, Marc takes great pride in working with his entire family as they continue improving on 130 years of farming success. With the sixth generation of kids already active on the farm, the Kaisers understand the long-term value of science-based nutrition management to ensure the farm continues to operate.

Family for Over 150 Years

Marc farms with his dad on a generational farm that was first established in 1891. He grows corn and soybeans on a 50/50 rotation on a total of 4500 acres. Marc and his father have clear and defined roles running the operation: Marc manages field operations, and his father is the business manager. With an extended family who have a unique mix of entrepreneurial skill and technical agronomy training, there is plenty of focus on field analytics, financial ROI and environmental stewardship.

Marc is comfortable challenging the status quo. The Kaisers are early adopters of technology for planters, tractors and application equipment, and recently added a second planter so they can plant both corn and soybeans earlier in the season when conditions allow.

Marc is involved with American Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers, the University of Missouri Regenerative Ag Advisory, Ag Alumni Association, and his local YMCA Board. In his spare time, he enjoys playing with his young kids and golfing when time allows.
