This NebGuide reviews factors to consider when choosing a crop consultant. Efficient management of a profitable crop production system includes estimating pest populations, determining fertilizer needs, and, in the case of irrigation, monitoring soil/water conditions. Decisions regarding pest management should include information from recurring field visits that estimate pest populations, potential plant damage and crop growth. Regular visits to the field are necessary to monitor soil/water conditions by the use of soil probes, soil moisture blocks, tensiometers, or other methods to assure efficient application and use of irrigation water.
