Adding value to the consulting business – Summit Ag
Summit Ag Agricultural Consulting partnering with Trial Supplies
With over 40 years of agronomic experience, our Summit Ag team has built a reputable business based on providing timely and high-quality agronomic advice to our clients. Our services range from implementing farm management plans, gross margin analysis, irrigation scheduling and extensive crop monitoring and management. Operating out of the Riverina covering dryland and irrigated cropping, our passionate team of 5 love all things agriculture and seeing our clients reap the rewards of their hard work.
However, in agriculture, the unpredictable nature of weather has meant our business is exposed to the ebbs and flows of water allocations, in-season rainfall and factors outside our control that impact our ability to adequately manage our cash flow every year. The introduction of research trials to our core business utilising the Trial Supplies equipment, has seen a multitude of benefits created for Summit Ag and our clients we service. Not only are we staying up to date with the latest products entering the market, we are further understanding the potential and more importantly, the limitations of currently available products, be it across crop protection, fertiliser or varieties. With the average fee to complete an efficacy trial ranging from $6,000 to $10,000, the value in upskilling our team to generate the accurate data and answer the trial aims is very important. Completing this research for various organisations not only smooths out the cash flow of variable seasons, but adds tremendous value to the recommendations we are then able to make to our clients.
The ability to access safe, accurate and local trial equipment has reduced a lot of barriers to us completing this research work. Our Brolga has been in full flight, accurately spraying trials since we purchased this trial spray boom and pressure pack. The one-stop shop at Trial Supplies for all our trial equipment needs during the season has been a huge time saver and we know their products are high quality, field tested and built to last. We look forward to utilising Trial Supplies for our future research equipment needs as we continue to improve and expand our research offering at Summit Ag.
