The Agronomy Specialist™

Agronomic Acumen is a consultancy firm that specialises in agronomy and is based in Albany, Western Australia. We provide various services that include regular paddock/field inspections, development of paddock plans, one-off farm visits for advice, talking to groups, giving seminars and providing a completely independent view on why your chemical product is not selling or what should be done to make it a best seller. We also publish a monthly newsletter, back issues of which are available here for download.

We manage farms for investors and land owners who want maximum sustainable profits using the best agronomic techniques. We are also able to manage your farm if you just want a break or are having trouble keeping up with the rapid change of agriculture.
