For thousands of years, earthworms have been associated with healthy soils and bountiful crops. This is both a cause and effect relationship. Earthworms are present because there is an ample supply of beneficial microorganisms in the soil and the soil is in good physical condition. Earthworm compost is the result of earthworms eating organic matter and soil microbes and, in the process, excreting castings that contain beneficial microbes, hormones, vitamins, and plant growth factors.

It’s a great place to meet with growers we work with from all around the state. Dr. Marc Fuchs, Plant Pathology Professor at Cornell University, spoke

The Pest and Pathogen Carousel

I’m reading a book by Francis Chaboussou called “Healthy Crops.” The book has groundbreaking material, and all growers should give it a read. I would compare Chaboussou (although much less known) to Liebig, the German chemist who made major contributions to agriculture and biological chemistry and was considered the founder of organic chemistry. Chaboussou presents

Customer Testimonials

I’m very pleased with the results this season and really believe in your products and program. I think that you have something special. We plan to expand your products application next season.

Sander Sheer, Hess Collection Winery

Andaman products (Agrostim and Supegrow) performed to high satisfaction as they always have. We plan to keep using them in the future. We observed encouraging results when applying the products at a very high rate under specific conditions. We should touch base on this sometime later.

Francisco J Araujo, Atlas Vineyard Management, Inc.

This is my 4th year using the product. We have expanded the use of Agrostim and other Andaman products on all managed blocks and varieties. I make 5 applications mixed with fungicides beginning with 6” of vegetative growth through bloom. I’ve reduced the use of other fertilizers and amendments since using Agrostim. I’m very pleased with the product and recommending it to other growers to use it as well. 2013 has produced very similar results to last season which are excellent quality and yield on Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Al Wagner, Clos Du Val
