An alternative to renting your land. Hackett Agricultural Consultants has developed a ‘stubble to stubble’ service to suit landowners or growers that cannot devote the time necessary to their crops. In a stubble to stubble service, Hackett Agricultural Consultants will assume responsibility for the full cropping programme for a full season. This service incorporates the agronomy of the crop, including development of a suitable rotation, fertiliser and pesticide inputs and the regulatory elements and the single payment / cross compliance issues of the enterprise. The service also includes liaising directly with the grower/ landowners selected input supplier or suppliers so that inputs are delivered directly onto the farm as soon as recommended. It also includes liaison with the operators to ensure each application and operation is applied as per recommendation, on time, every time. The service begins at the start of the cropping season where soil samples are taken and analysed, through to preparation and planting and continues to the end of the season, where the performance of each crop in each field is analysed and any changes recommended for implementation the following year.
