MACC - Midwest Advanced Crop Consulting


Personalized Crop Consulting For Higher ROI

Midwest Advanced Crop Consulting (MACC) is an education program developed to teach farmers throughout the country how to increase their crop yields – especially corn and soybeans. The program was developed by farmers for farmers.

National Corn Yield Contest winners Kevin Kalb and Terry Vissing – along with trusted advisor Joe Dedman – have combined their collective knowledge and experiences to create a program that will help you see things differently and understand the science behind the yields.

Every farm is different… what works on one farm may not work on another. Rather than telling farmers a set formula to increase their yields, this program teaches them how to set the formula themselves, based on their farm’s data and intermittent results.

This hands-on program consists of a series of meetings with presentations, demonstrations, and interactive discussions throughout the year, with one goal in mind: how to consistently increase yield.

An understanding of soil and tissue testing, and how to use that data, is at the core of the program. You will learn effective ways of testing: What works, what doesn’t, and how to make continuous improvements.

At each meeting we will review soil and tissue sample data. We will point out the challenges we see with the samples and how to address them. Meetings will also focus on techniques for planters and other equipment; effective brands of seed, herbicide, and fertilizer; herbicide and fungicide timing; and fertilizer placement and timing. Meetings may also include additional experts in plant and soil health and product professionals from throughout the industry.

What are MACC growers saying about working with our award-winning team?

“I believe the MACC school has been a real advantage for us. Kevin and Terry share their knowledge with us and we apply it to our farming operation. And talking with other farmers has been great. We have all learned something new this year that we had not thought of before.”


“Being a part of the MACC Group has been great for me. Working with people with this level of knowledge has helped me take my yields to the next level. It’s about learning to pay attention to the small things that have a big impact. Being a part of the MACC Group is absolutely a no-brainer for anyone looking to increase ROI! I would do it again in a heartbeat. Plus the networking and friendships I have built along the way… I can’t wait to get back together and talk about the results from this season.”


“Becoming a MACC member has been a good decision… a good investment. We are still learning what will work on our farm, but have seen good results. We are in the fourth year of tissue sampling and are really familiar with it now and what we need to do based on the results. Getting all of the levels balanced is a key to raising our yields.”
