AGCONSULT Ltd.

Agconsult is an independently owned company that started in 1987. We are working mostly in the area of viticulture but are also involved in more general horticultural/agricultural work.Specific viticultural areas we cover:
  •   Soil fertility, soil biological activity
  •   Soil structure and sustainable soil management
  •   Relationships between site parameters, vines and effects on grape quality (Terroir)
  •   Vine nutrient uptake (petiole/blade analyses and interpretation,
      foliar and root uptake of nutrients, mycorrhizal uptake)
  •   Vine health
  •   Biological control of disease (incl. elicitors and SAR)
  •   Soil, vine and grape data management (storing all soil petiole etc test results in format that
      is easily retrievable and allows detailed analysis to help improve soil/vine management
  •   Precision viticulture; linking soil, vine and grape data to a geographical based system

These areas can be looked at in isolation, but in virtually all situations it is the interaction of these individual aspects that is dealt with.Examples of where we work:

  •   Consultancy, site assessment and evaluation (pre purchase or pre-planting)
  •   Improve soil quality and vine performance in problem sites
      (compaction, nutrient imbalance, diseased vines etc.)

  •   Product evaluation and Research and Development (NZ and Australia)
