Our Custom Hire Services

Maximize Your Yields With Proven Experience & Precision Advantage.

Within the last decade, custom farming has been a viable agriculture sector to fill a variety of farming needs.  With the cost of new machinery increasing dramatically and the limited labor pool, some Landowners seek contracting custom planting and post planting, fertilizer application, harvesting grain and soybeans, and hauling services.  No matter what your situation whether your operation is growing, you are maximizing your inputs, or you are preparing for semi-retirement, Petersen Bros., Inc. is the right option for you. 


Experienced - Petersen Bros., Inc. has custom planted and harvested for farmers in York and Seward counties and is open to custom work in Fillmore, Saline, Seward, and York counties in Nebraska.  As the custom operator, we can perform all or part of the machine operations on the owner’s land in exchange for a set fee or rate. The Landowner pays for all seed, chemicals, and other inputs, and keeps all of the crop and commodity payments while we perform all the machine operations on the owner’s land in exchange for a set fee or rate.

Precision – As a smart farmer, you are looking at more ways to apply precision farming practices to increase your production.  Now, you can apply those same practices when hiring Petersen Bros., Inc. as your custom fertilizer and lime applicator.  

  • Integration - We use GPS mapping to apply the fertilizer at the correct prescription rate and supply the spread maps upon completion. 

  • Precision - We stay within the rows to preserve your strip tilling and keep your soil compaction to a minimum.  

  • Timing – We apply fertilizer based on your ideal time. No more waiting at the end of a long list.

  • Optimize – You keep your purchasing discounts, prices, and rewards with your current fertilizer supplier.  You purchase and we will pick it up.
