Maintenance Procedures Guidelines

Our maintenance procedures guidelines aggregate a set of best practices to keep your farming equipment operative in terms of day-to-day farming activities. Agricultural “time windows” may be very narrow due to climatic challenges or complex multi-crop rotation plans. Also, potential equipment shortage of failure might affect the quantity and the quality of the production and inexorably lead to both yield and financial losses. FGM International is recognized for its good management practices, including the day-to-day and after-season maintenance procedure of vital equipment. Our preemptive maintenance philosophy is reflected in our maintenance procedure guidelines, in which we indicate the best time to perform necessary maintenance, in line with production requirements. These guidelines come with a list of key tools and equipment required for maintenance purposes. Maintenance principles and overall management organization. Day-to-day maintenance tasks. Optimal season’s maintenance before and after the cropping season. Overall workshop and mobile workshop organization.

Multiple-crop Rotation Plan

The crop rotation plan organizes different types of crops sequenced in the same geographical area to maximize overall yield, profit and results whilst benefiting from the agronomic advantages of the various crop types. The crop rotation plan delivered by FGM optimizes the sequencing of crops produced in the various fields over the years. The rotation of multiple crops is recommended to maintain or develop the organic matter content of the soil, improve its fertility and structure while enhancing control of insects, weeds, diseases and erosion. Amongst the many technical benefits of this plan, we underline the fact that it can reduce production costs and increase the profit margin per crop. The multiple-crop rotation methodology may be associated with crop husbandry plans to further optimize the production potential. Detailed crop scenario including comparison between different possibilities according to the project’s objective and the expected yield. Tailored estimation of input requirements.
