I have been thinking about this for a while but have been very hesitant.
My job is on the research side of agriculture and wanted to make a thread where I can talk to others about the science that goes into this industry.
Specifically I work on specialty crops: Strawberries, Leafy Veg, Brassica (broccoli, cabbage, etc.), Cucurbits(pumpkins, melons, cucumbers), tomatoes, and wine grapes.
The other aspect of my business is trying to bring some more precision ag to my territory that utilizes Google Maps as an overlay.
The work I do is both conventional growing methods as well as organic.
If anyone has any questions please feel free to post them and I will reply the best I can or share articles in the effort to educate. I am not here to argue with anyone but discuss the different approaches to growing food.
Please note that I will not respond to hateful or inflammatory responses.
