We believe it is important to know that not all agronomists, crop consultants or crop consulting businesses think alike. We do believe that achieving above average results comes through the management of many contributing factors. Some of these factors include variety selection, soil fertility, planting date, planting depth, seed to soil contact, crop emergence, plant populations, pest thresholds, pest removal, pest risk management, maturity dates, in season precipitation and soil moisture management. Years of research will support that an error in any of these areas can reduce yields and / or quality. Understanding these specific items and how they affect different crop types are some of the keys that will help you achieve your objectives. Other keys to achieving these objectives is understanding and implementing the timing of these management decisions.
At ALCS, we understand that you cannot apply the same program or plan to each and every operation. Different crop types, soil types, equipment and management practices all have an impact on each operation. We work closely with our clients to understand how their operation work and then work towards implementing a program to achieve the objectives
