Program Highlights

Field Health & Growth

Are you meeting a standard baseline minimum yield per acre? We can help you do better. Allow us to audit your nutrient, fertilizer, and water logs. Our audits also examine cultivation practices and pruning. Our field audits increase your profits.

Planting/Water Schedules

Need help understanding when and where to plant? Do you know if you are under watering or over watering? The cost of over watering is highly significant on your budget. We are well-versed in water and can help you if an area of your field too wet or dry.

Labor Management

Need labor? A better labor contractor? Need your labor closely monitored or audited? Need an idea of how many people are needed on-site for a given job? We are not labor contractors but will connect you with a better one or make personnel changes for you.
