06 December 2021, UK: New British Leafy Salads Association member Agrovista UK offers a range of specialist services to growers from crop planning through to harvest.
Agrovista UK is a leading supplier of agronomy advice, crop protection products and precision farming services, working in partnership with farmers and growers across the country.
With roots going back more than 60 years, Agrovista operates on a nationwide basis, offering a unique blend of local experience, research-based practical expertise along with customer-based knowledge and trusted relationships.
Our team of specialist agronomists has a wealth of experience across all aspects of leafy salad production and management, delivering bespoke solutions that help maximise agronomic potential.
Through a tailored and flexible service, customers can pick and choose from agronomy, business advice, product, finance and technical support, while benefiting from new innovations and technologies, to keep them operating at the top of their game.
Agrovista’s fully qualified agronomists are supported by the company’s wider trials network and R&D team and have access to valuable tools such as soil health programmes, weather station services and precision farming technology.
In a highly competitive business such as leafy salad production, there is no room for error. Many crops are only in the ground for a few weeks, so mistakes must be avoided and risks minimised. This is where Agrovista comes in.
Effective weed, disease and pest control programmes are key. Poor weed control alone can result in crops being left unharvested, potentially upsetting production schedules and sapping profits.
But it much more than that. We can advise in every step of the growing process from land selection, integrated husbandry, drilling programmes, machinery, crop nutrition, non-PPP inputs, residue and micro testing and interpretation and audit preparation.
As a new member of the BLSA, we look forward to working closely with the organisation and its members to help the sector continue to meet the needs of an ever-changing and demanding marketplace.
