Our Core Model

  • Implementation of ISO Standards
  • Soil * Climate * Leverage (irrigation) = Yield Potential
  • Continuous cultivation of available surface during the vegetation period, which is mid February – mid December in South Romania
  • Standardization of all processes, allowing for weather related flexibility
  • Data collection of weather information, soil temperature and humidity, river and sea temperature to create an individual 3-week forecast
  • 3-week forecast is processed in farm management model along with crop development status (fertilizer and crop protection), soil humidity (mechanical field works), crop maturity (harvest) and critical conditions (frost, drought) to create a continuous 20-day calendar for field operations
  • Optimization of machinery utilization based on 20-day calendar
  • 2-shift model for farm workers and machinery operators, partially 24/7
  • Optimization of crop mix taking climate, markets, field operation and storage costs into account. Short term market changes are not influencing the crop mix, but are managed with typical commercial and financial trading tools
  • Irrigated surfaces have a different crop mix compared to non-irrigated surfaces
  • Optimization of machinery utilization efficiency through field layout, crop mix, logistics, headland management and full utilization of working width by implementing GPS technology
  • Implementation of a “Connected Farm” ERP and precision agriculture information system
  • Establishment of buffer storages to allow for continuous machinery field operations
  • Efficient maintenance programs for field equipment and machinery, typically in between shifts, for combine fleets during dew times
  • Standardization of machinery fleet to create synergies, reserves and an optimized maintenance and parts program
