So you need laboratory data to make ergonomic decisions. So why even have an agronomist has studied the field of plant biology plant physiology soils fertility. They have a very good understanding of how to manipulate the environment and we do it scientifically with the application the field right? So Agronomy 101, so when I when I go to your house, I grow if it's a ranch or whatever it is. One of the first things I start to look at is what is your nutrient budget? And I don't mean that in the way of dollars. I
mean in that in the way of what is the crop requirement? because depending on the variety depending on your growing conditions depending on if you’re soil or if your substrate that is what's going to dictate what that cop requirement is. And if you're talking to me, I'm going to ask you do you have you understand? What a crock nutritional curve is? So what that means is overtime how much nutrition is your cop taking in of what nutrition and of what quantity and so those are some factors that we look at is it going to this and to in order to manipulate your fertility program
the other side of this is measurement. We cannot change or just anything if we're not measuring and utilizing laboratory data is one of the number one way that we help Growers because we give you an insight into what's happening either in the soil within the plant within our feeding program. All those are measured by laboratory data. And so this is something that we came in on significantly at our company.
