Crop husbandry plan & technical note for farm infrastructure


FGM was assigned by an Azerbaijani company willing to receive remote consultancy for its local team of specialists in terms of cropping programs. FGM had to provide the client with a crop husbandry plan as well as, specifications for their farm’s infrastructure.



The challenge

Provide the client with farm infrastructure specifications, despite not being used to work on an 100% remote base, in order to handle the expected farm production defined by the crop husbandry plan we delivered in 2018.

FGM results

FGM has provided a detailed crop husbandry plan and farm layout, buildings’ design and specifications as well as, a full equipment list for all  the infrastructures.
