Matthew Summers on Soil Health

Wenck technical expert Matthew Summers was volunteering at the USDA-NRCS soil demonstration “Can You Dig It? Get the Scoop on Soil” at the Minnesota State Fair Kemp’s Little Farm Hands exhibit. Partnering with senior soil scientists from NRCS, Matthew helped teach kids and parents all about the incredible world of soil, including several hands-on demonstrations highlighting soil health, soil biology, cover cropping, and farm management. Check out what he has to say.

Drone (sUAS) Technology offers Better Land Surveying, GIS Solutions

Wenck is leading the industry through our integration of aerial imagery obtained by small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS), commonly referred to as drones. Drone photography provides us with high resolution aerial images of many of our project sites which in the past would have required a photogrammetry company to fly the site with a full size fixed wing aircraft. The portability, ease of use, flexibility, and accessibility of drone hardware provides better imagery at a small fraction of the cost when compared to legacy photogrammetry methods.

HVAC Hygiene Must-Haves for Food Plants

One of the most important aspects of a Ready to Eat (RTE) food facility is cleanliness. Product handling procedures, methodical consistent clean up, and good construction details are of tremendous value in avoiding any type of infestation or product contamination. In addition, any Balance of Plant (BOP) system that may have food contact, or the ability to spread bacteria, mold, moisture or product fines etc. requires attention from the engineers and designers of the facility. One of the primary BOP systems that demands thoughtful design is the HVAC systems. Airborne particles of food, spores, bacteria, yeast, etc. can initiate or spread contamination quickly. The Air Handling Systems themselves can also be a place where bacteria can grow and be spread in the internals of the Air Handling Units (AHU) and ductwork.
