We are still the same but dif­fer­ent…

NZ Grower - - What’s New -

Cel­e­brat­ing 30 years of ser­vice this year, Pukekohe Grow­ers Sup­plies Ltd (PGSL) was founded in 1988 by cur­rent own­ers Rod Ke­tels and Garry El­liott to ser­vice the Pukekohe and Waikato re­gions of­fer­ing ad­vice and so­lu­tions on all as­pects of veg­etable crop pro­duc­tion.

Now with some growth, fo­cussed ded­i­ca­tion and the de­sire to be the most in­no­va­tive and com­plete agron­omy so­lu­tions com­pany in the in­dus­try, PGSL has changed its name to Inta-Ag Lim­ited. There is no change in own­er­ship or com­pany struc­ture.

Inta-Ag prides it­self on its tech­ni­cal ap­proach, and with the re­cruit­ment of Shane Smith as CEO in April 2017, now has five full time agron­o­mists fully fo­cussed on ser­vic­ing its clients re­quire­ments, re­main­ing flex­i­ble and adapt­ing to their ever chang­ing needs. Adding to “pre­scrip­tion grow­ing”, crop scout­ing and record keep­ing via the Muddy Boots soft­ware Green­light, and the of­fer of weather sta­tions and dis­ease fore­cast­ing mod­els, Inta-Ag has now fur­ther di­ver­si­fied bring­ing to life new agron­omy of­fer­ings and ser­vices on a na­tional scale. The new name rep­re­sents the com­pany phi­los­o­phy, com­pletely ‘inta’-agron­omy!

To sup­port this Inta-Ag has proudly added even more ser­vices to the ex­ist­ing reper­toire in­clud­ing grid and zone soil sam­pling, EC map­ping for soil tex­ture and rel­a­tive mois­ture and Veris ph map­ping, psyl­lid trap­ping and anal­y­sis, drone tech­nol­ogy analysing soil and plant health, Biochar com­post dis­tri­bu­tion, and has joined forces with Mi­cron UK to im­port Varidome sprayers and tank sys­tems with sup­port­ing soft­ware tech­nol­ogy from Ger­many. Inta-Ag also of­fers Work­place Health and Safety sup­port of­fer­ing ad­vice in the im­ple­men­ta­tion of risk man­age­ment, emer­gency prepa­ra­tion and safety sys­tems to meet Work­safe reg­u­la­tions. In con­junc­tion with H&S Inta-Ag of­fers Global GAP Au­dit doc­u­ment prepa­ra­tion and helps pro­vide ad­vice to main­tain good agri­cul­tural prac­tices. Lyn Larsen has worked with the com­pany for 21 years and brings breadth of ex­pe­ri­ence and knowl­edge on all re­quire­ments to your work­place. In ad­di­tion to this com­pre­hen­sive suite of ser­vices, Inta-Ag has many more ex­cit­ing new projects on the hori­zon and will also soon launch a cus­tomer loy­alty re­wards pro­gramme so watch out for more in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this.

PGSL has al­ways been a lead­ing in­no­va­tor and 30 years of pres­ence in the in­dus­try is tes­ta­ment to the com­pany suc­cess, Inta-Ag Lim­ited is com­mit­ted to that role go­ing for­ward and con­tin­ues to think glob­ally of­fer­ing new tech­nolo­gies and en­hanced ser­vices to its clients, still the same but bet­ter!.
