Innovations, BMP's and the Enviornment
When the Wedgworths were establishing themselves as an integral part of the Florida farming community, they also became responsible for many of the innovations that are still used today. From the time that Herman Wedgworth was blending his first batches of fertilizer with nothing more than his agronomist knowledge and a shovel, the Wedgworth name has become synonymous with smart farming.
Whether developing blends of micro-nutrients to supplement the rich black muck soils that the Glades are famous for or producing more complex custom blends to enhance sandy soil ridges, Wedgworth’s Inc. has the mix of products and ability to meet any customer’s needs. Application of materials using state-of-the-art machinery, like the Air Max Spreader, increases productivity and increases the efficiency on the farm. The Wedgworth family businesses have been at the forefront of developing and implementing cutting edge science and technology that leads to agronomic success.
Wedgworth’s Inc. ability to custom blend agricultural products allows farmers to operate in a more environmentally friendly way. By adding just the right amount of nutrients right at the plant’s root zone prevents nutrient runoff in drainage ditches and saves the farmer money. Smart fertilizer application is not only good for the environment, but it’s also good for business.
