Emerald Agriculture Technologies (EAT) provides services covering
the entire spectrum of an agricultural project from inception to
Data Gathering and Collection
This phase, often overlooked to an extent is actually the most crucial
stage in the lifetime of the project. EAT believes that for a successful
agriculture project a thorough gathering of the following data is
- Area Soil type, Slopes, current coverage.
- Climate Monthly accurate data of temperatures
(min/max/average), humidity, winds (average, max, gusts, direction),
precipitation (rain/hail/snow), solar radiation.
- Utilities Water sources, Energy for heating, electricity,
- Economical Data of Target markets - Current demand in target
markets (prices, seasonality, packaging and competition), distance
and viability of transportation, cost of labor, cost of materials,
cost of utilities and more.
The final design of the project is provided after the data collection
phase, in accordance with specific client demands. EAT is:
- Committed to provide the highest quality solution
- Committed to provide the most cost effective solution
- Not committed to any single manufacturer or design style as
EAT's goals are client oriented.
EAT's designs include much more than a mere greenhouse structure.
Following the client's requirements the solution proposed by EAT
- Details of the greenhouse structures and internal furniture
- Additional structures such as heating facilities, packing
- Project timeline, including financial projections
When the project elements (e.g. greenhouse) arrive on site the
construction phase is closely monitored by EAT which provides its
clients highly skilled technicians and supervisors.
The client may opt for training of local construction crews and further
supervision, which may lower construction costs.
In addition, whenever the need arises, EAT can provide working tools and
Professional farm management
EAT provides its clients a unique service of placing an experienced
professional farm manager to lead the farm and manage it on a day-by-day
Following a successful initiation and construction of an agricultural
project, an inexperienced client may also need further agronomical
guidance such as:
- The specific species of the crops to be grown
- Materials, chemicals and fertilizers needed
- Best practices for the growing cycle
- Equipment purchasing
- Growing techniques
As a result EAT offers its agronomic guidance services for a limited
period of time after the project's completion, so that its clients may
also enjoy the expertise and know-how of the company, accumulated through
many successful projects.
Training local professional staff
An indispensable part of a major project is the establishment of local
professional training centers within a demonstration farm in which
experimentations in adapting various crops and species to the local
conditions will be performed.
In addition, these training centers are used to train and qualify a
local staff of instructors who will later on train and guide local
farmers. The local staff and farmers are exposed to contemporary
agriculture technologies and growing techniques. These training centers
are managed by highly professional experts who normally reside on
