If you would like to get in contact with our agronomists you can fill out our farm profile.
Define your goals for success
Everyone can define their goals and success differently. Some would like to see higher yields, some want to spend less on fertilizers, some want to use fewer pesticides, some would like to switch to 100% organic products and some would like to grow better crops. While we understand all of these want to be obtained, finding your top priority this growing season gives us a measurement, it helps us review and build based on what you view as a successful season.
Test your soil
It all starts with a sample.
Taking a soil sample and having it analyzed can reveal imbalances and limitations in your soil nutrient levels and show you where you may have nutrients "locked up" that may be unavailable to your plants. We can use this information and link it with the goals you have this season.
Develop comprehensive program
With the information about goals and soil analysis, we can begin to develop a fertility program that is a custom fit for your farm. We can address your soil's limiting factors with amendments, biostimulants, and nutrients that will give you the best return on your inputs investments.
Monitor and adjust as necessary
There are many ways to monitor progress and this is why it is so important to have your goals for success. We can use tools to monitor your soil and crops progress and then hold it up against your goals to see how we are doing.
One of our favorite ways to monitor progress is through tissue analysis. This allows us to view your plant's health and do mid-season corrections that can help your crop avoid any unnecessary nutrient deficiencies. By correcting this early on you can help fight against plant stress, disease, and insect pressure - all of which can reduce your yield potential.
Refractometer readings throughout the season can measure a plant's Brixº levels. Brixº has a direct effect on the quality and flavor of the fruit and can provide an indication of the crop's inherent immunity level to resist disease and pest pressure.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a consultation cost?

The only cost when it comes to consultations is your soil samples. We will help you read them, offer recommendations and walk alongside you in the season.

Yes, we have an excellent logistics team that can ship anywhere in North America. We are very familiar with shipping anything from a 1L jug to thousands of litres across the country.
Do you have any training programs?
We try to host a 4-day workshop every year that focuses on nutritional farming practices. Dave deVries also writes a monthly newsletter that is just packed with beneficial information. Dave is also available for teaching bookings and courses.
