My name is Mitch Waters, besides operating GA Ag Research, I am a horticulturist at heart. I’m always gardening for clients. I have 18 years of life/work experiences on a 600 acre farm(dairy, cattle, produce, hay). To me, their is nothing better than fresh picked food; whether from the farm or from the backyard. Residential crop production, even if it’s just a couple of tomato bushes, is the best way to gain an awareness of healthy nutritional habits. The top quality taste is an added bonus.
My degree is in Agricultural Communications, with a focus in Botanical Chemistry. I volunteer through Farm Bureau doing “Ag in the Classroom”. What a great opportunity it’s been for me to share my Agricultural journey with elementary, middle & high school students, who may not normally be aware of how food gets to their dinner plate.
As a group of Horticultural Specialists & Techs in farm-based laboratory, Georgia Ag Research Grp. works with land developers, farmers, building contractors, landscape designers... Basically dirty people like us, who work from the ground up. We determine the quality of land from the ground down; basically a property’s dirt underground. Including soil type, plant growth and structural barriers- including root travel direction and type, land elevations, quantification of the nutrient content(N, P, K, Fe & pH levels using ACS Certified reagents), and we also identify & treat crop/plant disease(s) & pest issues. After we take several soil samples from specified areas of a property, we draw a topographic style outline to differentiate changes in soil type, plant growth(visible & non), structural coverage, as well as the rise and fall of various nutrient levels charted by color difference. We assure building contractors the property’s structural capacity potential and stability. We offer farmers an idea of where best to plot their crop for maximum production, what fertilizer application type and quantity required based on test results and the ground surface outline.
