Peace of Mind Advantage
Armstrong understands the best control strategies, including fertilizers and pesticides, need to be well-informed decisions. If the correct controls are not chosen, the disease or deficiency will not be controlled or corrected with obvious losses in the number of useable plants, plant quality, fertilizer, water, pesticides and labor. Each of these losses translates directly into increased expense in caring for the installation. Finally, if you are not sure what the pest or disease is and you apply a chemical that does not work you may cause further damage.
We want you to have peace of mind.
Armstrong offers diagnostic services from two of the best companies in the industry. As a regular seasonal change out customer, we will pay for your test and if needed offer onsite expert analysis from our many industry partners.
