AGQ Labs continuously evaluates what the crop needs at all times. Throughout the campaign they monitor the water and nutrient uptake of the crop and advise the client on how to adjust their irrigation and fertilizers to the optimal level. This type of control also allows AGQ labs clients to follow sustainable agricultural practice because leaching is minimized. The result is minimizing environmental impact, optimization of fertigation, higher quality product, significant cost savings in fertilizers, increased productivity and performance.
AGQ Labs has developed an internal proprietary procedure for crop nutritional monitoring and control that is based on the analysis of soil solutions that are extracted by AGQ Labs' patented suction lysimeter probes.
