About ALC Consolidated

ALC Consolidated started as a small lysimeter laboratory in 2011, analyzing soil solution using lysimeters.  In late 2013 the owners of ALC Consolidated 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. ALC Consolidated was built by agronomists in order to fill the missing gap between the typical laboratories and in-field consulting with growers.

ALC Consolidated’s agronomists understand the importance of analysis in soil and fertility management. Through our production experience in combination with our analytical services, we can provide the most practical agronomic advice due to understanding firsthand, the different variables that growers face.

ALC Consolidated takes pride in the fact that we are the first and only commercial laboratory based in the Santa Maria Valley. We provide service from Salinas to Oxnard as well as Northern California, Oregon and Imperial Valley. We work with a wide variety of crops ranging from row crops, berry crops, vineyards, trees and field crops.

ALC Consolidated has Soil Scientists, Agronomists, Crop Advisors, and Pest Control Advisors on Staff. With over 60 years of combined experience, ALC Consolidated can provide a wealth of analytical and crop advising experience to serve its clients.

ALC Consolidated was built by members that have been involved in the local agriculture community for over 20 years.

Mission Statement

ALC Consolidated provides analytical soil, water and tissue analysis along with agronomic consulting, tailored specifically for agricultural growers.
