Audit phase

Study of the physical and chemical characteristics of agricultural plots

  • It is the sampling, the chemical analysis of the soil components and the mapping of each hectare of the plots in order to help the farmer to identify the deficient zones and the well-endowed zones, and thus to bring precisely the right dose in any point of the plots.
  • By precisely identifying variations in the levels of phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, pH, CEC and exchangeable calcium, we can:
  • Reduce fertilizer and / or lime expenses
  • Increase yields where nutrients and / or acidity are limiting factors
  • Reduce the impact on the environment by avoiding an excess of fertilizer in areas already well provided

Energetic costs and inputs

This study consists of:

  • Evaluate energy consumption on farms, according to production systems, in order to deduce possible savings,
  • Evaluate the quantities of inputs used
  • Explore the possibilities of renewable energy production enabled by agricultural activity,

The Human and Technical Organization

This study consists of:

  • Start by reviewing the activities of the past year. Record the number of people hired and the time of year they were hired. Try to remember the difficulties that have arisen and write them down for planning the coming year.
  • Assessment of future needs following the implementation of new agricultural labor solutions and equipment and the possible recruitment of workers.
