We believe that the nurturing of new ideas, stewardship and sustainability of production, increases the richness and productivity of farmland.
Alluvial is the name of one of the best types of soil resulting from the sedimentary deposits of frequent historic floods. These alluvial fans move nutrients and sediments from rivers to maintain some of the best farmland in the world. Without the constant flow of new materials and ideas the sustainability of the farmland can be lost.
We provide services and ideas that will enhance continued productivity of farmland that is both environmentally and economically sustainable.
Alluvial Agricultural Consulting has been providing services for 20 years to the central and southern San Joaquin valley farming community. We work directly for growers on a contract basis, so our interests are aligned in a fiduciary manner with the grower. We contract directly with growers to provide services. We do not sell chemicals, or make commissions.
Alluvial Agricultural Consulting is a professional service company providing:
• Integrated Pest Management
• Water Management (soil moisture, plant-based monitoring, and water budgeting)
• Soil and Fertility Management
• Field and Environmental Data Collection and Management for Certain biological control agents.
These tools are integrated into a cohesive mix of services to maximize both conventional and organic production systems. We provide information and advice on how to address pest management, irrigation, fertility and agronomic needs. This is based on scouting and information monitoring obtained directly from grower’s fields, on a periodic basis.
Written recommendations are provided allowing our clients to chose their supplier, or shop for the best price without being tied to one supplier.
We advise on a variety of major and minor crops grown throughout the central valley. A complete list is available on the crops page of this website. We use technology to increase the quality and reliability of data collection for decision-making.
