WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

  • I like to hear opinions from the outside – especially if it comes from an experienced, knowledgeable and open person. This allowed our conversation to run smoothly and effortlessly which is important. If at first we were skeptical about this service and its potential benefits then during the very first conversation Stephen proved the contrary.

  • Simon reviewed fertilization plan for winter wheat in a 1000 ha farm and managed to reduce the cost by € 50/ha (from 240 to 190 €/ha by changing the products – the plan itself, rounds and amount of elements remained the same.

    Argo, 800 ha farm
  • Simon knows his subject and can talk about it properly. It is difficult to find such advisors, most of them are salesman and they talk about the things and reasons that help them sell.

    Kaspar, 350 ha farm
  • Using second-generation hybrid rapeseed, reduced seeding cost from 55 €/ha to 5 €/ha for the following year with a marginal difference in yield.

    Stephen, AIA Online consultant
  • I like the cash flow and budget side of the consulting. Crops are secondary – once we sort out the financial stuff, we can successfully deal with crops.

    Andres, 1600 ha farm
  • An organic farmer planned to do seed treatment with different products, but none of those gives any guarantee being of value for the plant growth, hence, we suggested him to do a test field first. According to farmer’s calculations, the seed treatment costs 7-8 €/ha.

    Piibe, agronomical advisor
  • The mixes for a conventional farmer cost about 7-13 €/ha and are made of micronutrients and magic (amino acids etc). Our suggestion was to use liquid N with every spray, which costs him 3 €/ha and he probably will apply this 3-4 times. So overall, there’s not a big difference in cost, however, we are certain that our suggestion gives better outcome than any micro-magic mix.
