In the operation of a commercial greenhouse, there are many people that play key roles in the growing of crops on a seasonal basis. One of the important positions is an agronomist. An agronomist can be referred to as a crop scientist who specializes in the production and improvement of crops grown for food. An agronomist does this through testing and data collection for the best solutions and methods for crop production.
In order to increase crop production and improve efficiency in the commercial greenhouse, an agronomist looks for ways to increase soil or growing media productivity. Through testing and experience, an agronomist is the true ace up a commercial grower’s sleeve for improved productivity and crop yields. At a grow site there are different conditions at play that impact how a crop grows. Even in the same operation, conditions will cause different growth patterns and yields. Conditions such as soil or grow media type, the elevation of the grow site, the exposure to light and heat, and the overall irrigation all should be taken into consideration when designing and running a commercial operation. An agronomist is the perfect solution for maintaining and improving these conditions for the betterment of the crops.
