Wholesum, Arizona (US) and Mexico, coaching
Wholesum Harvest is a family business that has been growing vegetables for more than 60 years. 30 years ago, the company stopped using synthetic chemicals. Today, Wholesum Harvest is a successful organic vegetable production company with more than 30 acres of high-tech greenhouses and more than 15 acres of Pad&Fan greenhouses spread across two locations in the United States and Mexico.
Constantly looking for opportunities for improvement, Wholesum Harvest invited The Conscious Farmer to evaluate organic cultivation in all aspects of cultivation and operations, focusing on plant nutrition, watering, climate control and biological control.
Our consultants are now assisting Head Growers at two locations in improving cultivation and business operations. They developed integrated fertilizer recommendations, an annual preventive and curative schedule for biological crop protection, and a practical hygiene protocol for the prevention and control of various viruses.
An online training course called Soil Microbiome Microscopy Intensive was also conducted for the Research & Development staff to do a quick scan on the vitality of microbiology in soil, substrate and compost.
