The investor is a former army officer and owner of a pharmaceutical business in Algeria. Five years before contacting FGM, he started an agricultural enterprise with a 600 ha pivot irrigated project but did not achieve the expected profit. He sought to involve a specialized company to improve project production in terms of quantity and quality.
After five years of durum wheat and corn production, the project was not profitable. The site location has shallow soils which limit the yield potential and impoct product quality thus contributing to financial losses.
Following an agronomic assessment, including the identification and priorisation of key factors to be addressed; e.g. enhancement of the infrastructure and specific soil improvement practice FGM succeeded transforming the project to a profitable venture.
Evaluation of site potential and existing farming practices, comprehensive reviews of water resources and soil conditions based on a thorough site assessment and collection of hydrological, climatic and agronomic data.
