As a team, we are active members of nearly two dozen organizations that support agriculture and allow us to stay informed, guide our strategy, and positively participate in the agricultural community. It's not just what we do; it's what we love.
For over 130 years, A. Wilbert’s Sons has owned and operated sugarcane properties. We are an active member of the American Sugar Cane League, Louisiana Farm Bureau, and SUGAR (Sugar Growers and Refiners). Through these memberships and our own expertise, we are able to support and facilitate the operations of our lessees through cost-sharing and cooperatives to ensure best agricultural practices are followed.
We provide in-house expertise on various agricultural techniques and have direct access to industry experts through our strong partnership with the LSU AgCenter.
We are also well-versed in irrigation modeling and application techniques. With the latest technologies, like ultrasonic flow meters and state-of-the-art piping design software, our highly-trained personnel can design the best irrigation plan for our farmers’ needs. Utilizing the latest GPS technology and land surveying equipment, we can provide topographical land surveys and design plans for precision grading and leveling. To further complement this technology, we have invested in tractors and dirt pans to precision-level our properties.
