In 2017, Van Groningen & Sons had a block of almonds where approximately 30% of the emitters where mostly or completely plugged due to biofouling. After conducting a dual-product remediation, the Distribution Uniformity test revealed an astonishing improvement.
Meras Water Solutions has helped ensure our water lines function properly for years. Initially we reached out to the company when our almond field had root intrusion issues. With their water expertise and collaborative problem-solving approach, the system was quickly back up to speed and functioning exceptionally well–allowing for a profitable harvest. We attest to the success and to the quality products and exceptional customer service. Zack and Dylan, our Meras Water Solutions representatives, checked our system every day, and answered my phone call anytime–day or night. This is huge for me, as a farmer who runs a 24-hour operation! We were so impressed with the outcome and service that we have since had the company continue to provide product and service for our almond irrigation system, as well as the drip system for tomatoes. They continuously ensure that the product is injected into the lines as needed, there’s no corrosion of the lines, and I have peace of mind. Aside from helping us keep our crops healthy and profitable, Meras gives me the best hats!
In 2015, the ponds were covered with a blanket of Duckweed one to two inches thick… we met with Meras Water Solutions to develop a remediation plan… within a few months, the Duckweed was gone and the critical levels of oxygen in the ponds were improved.
Meras was contacted by a grower who had been battling a terrible Iron bacteria problem. He just could not get help with the right product and dosing to eliminate the problem. Our team met with the grower discovered the source at the discharge well, recommended a remediation plan and set out to rid the grower of the issue. After a week of work, the grower was amazed and grateful that his battle was over.
“I like Meras because they are on top of everything week in and week out. They go out to the field and check my irrigation system to make sure that the product is working and doing it’s job. Meras’ service is stellar, as a farmer, I don’t have to worry or call anyone out for service. You guys are around every week.”
