The article features British agronomist Sean Sparling. He visits his 21 clients' farms once a week because he feels that is vital to keeping the crops he walks in tip-top shape. It takes strong organisation skills to keep to that schedule, and Sparling is, perhaps, somewhat fortunate that his farms seem to fall very naturally into distinct blocks. He makes a point of building a relationship with the spray operator, as well as the farm manager or owner.
