Audit, check, monitoring of a condition of crops and fields, forecasts of crops productivity and yield, agronomy advice and consultations

 

 

Many must have come across the fact that an agricultural enterprise or an agricultural holding company (or a branch of an agricultural holding) declares one thing, but the actual situation turns out to be quite different, not the one that is declared. For example - for several years there has been no profit, or the harvest is low, or the pests have eaten crops, or something else ...

 

This can be caused either by deliberate concealment of the facts or the theft of material resources or crops, or it can be management errors caused by ignorance of how to properly made the agricultural business.

 

And that, and the other in its influence, is equivalent and leads to a significant losses of profit or its complete absence.

 

Independent audits and monitoring allow to determine the real situation, i.e., you can identify what is in reality - it is possible to monitor the situation with your investments, business or pledged property.

 

Also, the management and owners of the agrarian business or investors do not always have enough time to personally supervise all parts of the agrarian enterprise. You can not be at all points at the same time. And interested (dependent) persons may hide the real situation or worsen it because of ignorance.

 

Therefore, we, as independent experts, offer our assistance in conducting various types of monitoring and audits in the agricultural business and agriculture - for investors and owners of enterprises, as well as for financial institutions and banks.

Plants in the field are not really plants on their own, but investments of big money, and in order not to lose this money, you need to ensure that everything is normal, that everything is done correctly and that the investment is well. For this, independent professional monitoring and supervision are needed

 

 

 

The most common types of monitoring (revisions) are:

  • monitoring of industrial facilities and agricultural holding companies for the possibility of financing (for banks, investors and financial institutions)

  • grain terminals monitoring

  • monitoring the status of grows of various crops and risks

  • monitoring of crops in the field (for banks)

  • crop monitoring for yield forecasting

  • monitoring of stocks - grain, seeds, products of their processing (for banks)

  • monitoring fields with various agricultural crops (for investors and owners of agricultural holding companies and agricultural enterprises)

  • monitoring the timeliness and quality of technological operations in crop production

  • livestock monitoring

  • monitoring of the general condition of enterprises in the agricultural business and agriculture

  • monitoring the availability of immovable and movable property and stock balances (stocks of resources and goods or crops)

To obtain reliable results, each field must be inspected no less than 10 times per season. Fields with crops susceptible to pests damage (rapeseed, soybean, sunflower, should be inspected every 2-3 days)

 

Calendar of monitorings:

July - October - monitoring of the harvest and preparation of the soil for the next year's crop, monitoring of the pledged grain at the grain terminals

September - November - assessment of winter crops and control of their condition, monitoring of pledged grain at the grain terminals

December - March - monitoring the state of winter crops, survival, monitoring of pledged grain at grain terminals

February - March - assessment of the condition of winter crops after over wintering, monitoring of pledged grain at grain terminals

March - April - monitoring of spring field work and seeding, monitoring of pledged grain at grain terminals

April - August - monitoring of the state of crops, yield forecasting, monitoring of pledged grain at grain terminals

June - August - checking the readiness of the grain terminals for the acceptance of the new crop grain
 

 

What are the aims of the monitoring system:

  • Real-time monitoring of crops and assets

  • Monitoring the use of financial (investment) funds

  • Identification of problem areas in the fields and in agribusiness in general

  • Receiving additional profits from the prompt solution of timely identified problems

 

 

Monitoring of crops allows to solve the following tasks:

  • Qualitative assessment of the state of crops at various stages of vegetation

  • assessment of the quality of performance of any technological operation and the whole complex of actions

  • operative assessment of the condition of crops in each field during the whole growing season

  • assessment of field germination and uniformity of crops

  • soil treatment quality assessment

  • assessment of the current state of crops

  • crop ripening and yield forecasting

  • monitoring the timing and pace of harvesting crops

  • identifying factors of negative impact to crops (personnel actions, drought, flooding, freezing, hail, pests, etc.) and rapid assessment of the risk of crop death from adverse factors

  • identification of fields that have deviations from normal development, assessment and systematization of such fields (including the identification of the presence of diseases and pests, the presence of which leads to a decrease or complete loss of yield)

  • control of information about sowing areas and availability of crops

  • supervision of staff and agronomists works in the field

  • selection of the best fields for pledge and for insurance

  • and end up with a high quality crop and high additional profit

 

 

Phytosanitary monitoring of crops

The purpose of phytosanitary monitoring of crops, is to obtain additional profits and prevent losses from various pests (weeds, pests, diseases), which agronomists often do not notice due to ignorance and other reasons.

Phytosanitary monitoring provides an opportunity to predict and control the development and spread of diseases and pests, to determine their numbers and possible control actions. During phytosanitary monitoring, entomological, herbological and phytopathological studies are conducted.

Entomological studies - the detection of pests in crops, the determination of their developmental stages and the number of pests, the provision of recommendations for the protection of cultural plants from pests.

Herbiological studies - determining the species composition of weeds and their number in crops, providing recommendations for the protection of cultural plants from weeds.

Phytopathological studies - detection of diseases in crops, determination of their stages and level of damage, providing recommendations for the protection of cultural plants from diseases

 

Phytosanitary monitoring is planned in advance - so that timely measures can be taken to control pests, diseases and weeds. On the timing of these monitoring, it is best to consult with experts in advance.
