What I Do
I run a consulting practice that goes deep into optimizing soil and crop nutrition. I operate much like a crop detective — using data, a collaborative observational process, a network of really smart people, and the first principles of soil science and plant physiology to solve problems and unlock hidden potential in any operation.
I will work with most crops but gravitate toward crops where quality matters: hemp/cannabis, tree fruit, vegetables, berries, and grapes.
Soil Testing and Analysis
Soil, water, and plant testing is easiest and highest-ROI action you can take to improve crop health.
Yet the average soil test may not get you to where you need to go, and the value of the test is dependent on good interpretation.
I use a number of analytical tests to help unravel the complexity of soil and plant nutrition for your unique system that go far beyond a standard soil test.
If you haven’t worked with me before, this is an inexpensive and easy way to start.
I primarily work with growers in four ways:
One-time mineral nutrition analysis and recommendations on soil, water, or plant tissue/sap
Soil Solution Modeling and fertility plan adjustments
Crop Emergencies: solving acute nutritional emergencies if they arise
Full-season monthly consulting
While growers gain immense insight from the first three relationships, full-season monthly consulting is for growers who want to reach elite levels of production.
