Emerald Coast Growers Builds New Facility
Emerald Coast Growers has constructed a new, consolidated soil mixing facility, which the company says will increase efficiency and allow easier custom blending by crop. The new facility, located at the companys Milton, Fla., operation, uses two soil lines equipped with Kase soil feeders with agitators mounted on 16-inch-by-18-foot and 16-inch-by-24-foot soil handling conveyors. An electric-controlled 19-foot-long by 13-foot-high overhead hoist system paired with a medium duty trolley lets Emerald Coast Growers use 60-cubic-feet loose fill bags to load the 4-yard soil feeder. The facility sits on 6,000 square feet and has two loading docks. For more information on Emerald Coast Growers, visit www.ecgrowers.com.
