used to identify late weed problems, plant diseases, yield estimates and general field conditions
the service inspection is a fully customized inspection to evaluate and document fields for disease, genetic, or agronomic quality
In addition to these types of inspections, MCIA is able to identify particular weeds or crops which are determined to be a concern due to seed conditioning limitations or historical production problems. MCIA inspectors can identify these in the field and isolate them from the remaining portion of the field creating a clean product.
