Mr. Gray brings over ten years of agronomic and production management experience to Ag Laboratory & Consulting, where he serves as Principal Agronomist and Managing Partner. He is a California State licensed Pest Control Advisor (PCA) and Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) through the American Society of Agronomy. Eryn has worked in production for some of the world’s largest producers. He has developed a keen sense of understanding of how agronomics can maximize production, ultimately increasing efficiency and profitability. Ag Laboratory & Consulting started as a small lysimeter laboratory in 2011, analyzing soil solution using lysimeters. In late 2013 the owners of Ag Laboratory & Consulting decided to expand the laboratory to provide a full range of analytical services as well as free agronomic support for growers on the Central Coast. They focus upon a wide variety of crops ranging from row crops, berry crops, vineyards, trees and field crops. Ag Laboratory & Consulting has Soil Scientists, Agronomists, Crop Advisors, and Pest Control Advisors on staff and strives to provide growers with tangible analytical data while supporting growers to develop the data into best management practices.
