(Shenandoah)–He set out to start up a small, service-based Ag business in Shenandoah and six years later his dream has grown and is flourishing as Tall Corn Ag.
The Sidney native now co-owns the business with Alan Rodewald, where along with offering a full line of bagged feed products, folks can build their corn and soybean crops “from the ground up.”
It starts with seed and goes from there.
“We offer chemicals of all brands, all sizes, all makes. We offer dry and liquid fertilizer. We apply all of those products,” says Hobbie.
This all takes place within a 50-to-80-mile radius of Shenandoah.
With all the rain as of late, weeds are an issue.
“It’s something that we have to manage, it’s modes of actions of herbicides, it’s Liberty Link, it’s the dreaded word ‘dicamba’, but if used correctly, it all works well,” says Hobbie.
What about fungus potential with the wet conditions this growing season?
“It’s a good idea to start thinking about fungicides,” he says. “We have several to choose from, from the basic generics, that work well, all the way to the name brands.”
“We offer a full line of bagged feed, for dogs, cats, sheep, goats and cattle.”
Tall Corn Ag’s goat feed has produced numerous award-winning animals at various county fairs over the last couple of years.
It all starts and ends with good people, and Hobbie is proud of all the employees who make Tall Corn Ag what it is today, a growing value-added business that focuses on top-notch products and outstanding service for their producer customers in KMAland.
