The Agronomy Specialist™

Agronomic Acumen is a consultancy firm that specialises in agronomy and is based in Albany, Western Australia. We provide various services that include regular paddock/field inspections, development of paddock plans, one-off farm visits for advice, talking to groups, giving seminars and providing a completely independent view on why your chemical product is not selling or what should be done to make it a best seller. We also publish a monthly newsletter, back issues of which are available here for download.

We manage farms for investors and land owners who want maximum sustainable profits using the best agronomic techniques. We are also able to manage your farm if you just want a break or are having trouble keeping up with the rapid change of agriculture.

Latest Newsletter Topics - December 2018

  • Review of the 2018 season - one to forget for many, a very profitable year for others. But there’s a silver lining.
  • Planet barley comments - discussion on where we know it is the best option, and where it isn’t.
  • 2019 varieties - an extensive discussion on what are the best varieties to grow in 2019.
  • 1918 insecticide recommendation - an interesting look at what was recommended in 1918 to control pests on tomatoes. And it was organic. But remember, snake venom is also organic. We have much safer products these days, thankfully.
  • George W. Carver - comments from my visit to his museum in Tuskegee, Alabama. He was one of the greatest men to have walked this earth, and one of the most influential in agriculture across the USA, and the world. A great man!
