KFG Service Inspections

KFG READY-SET-GO SERVICE AND SUPPORT PACKAGES

KFG understands that time and manpower are precious commodities. Preparation and planning are paramount in eliminating the mistakes and downtime during the growing season that can have devastating effects on yield and your bottom line. Kenn-Feld Group believes that there are 4 critical steps that will reduce downtime and increase efficiency during the growing season.

4 STEPS TO A SUCCESSFUL SEASON

STEP 1 - Ready equipment for off season storage (clean, inspect, winterize and repair equipment prior to winter storage)

STEP 2 - Analyze Data

A. Validate & analyze post-season data (harvest, planting and application data)

B. Verify & load pre-season setup data (boundaries, maps, prescriptions, variety locator)

STEP 3 - Optimize equipment performance by verifying that equipment is set up properly and that you and your team fully understand how to make adjustments to equipment.

STEP 4 - Calibrate your combine to ensure that yield and moisture results are accurate as possible.

Providing you with the necessary assistance and knowledge to complete these 4 critical steps is the goal to which we strive. In order to meet this goal KFG has created a suite of service and support offerings entitled Ready-Set-Go.
