Dear SPGS commercial tree grower,
We are pleased to inform you of the clients’ inspections that are taking place in November and December 2014 by the SPGS technical Staff.
As you may be aware, the objectives of these routine field inspections among others are to:
Check your plantation standards to ensure they are consistent with the SPGS plantation establishment and maintenance standards (Refer to Standards)
Map (GPS) new plantations that you might have planted after previous inspections
Offer onsite technical advice basing on field observations
Recommend payments for plantations that meet SPGS standards
You are therefore, advised to support SPGS to ensure that these inspections proceed as planned and that you and your staff get the best from the technical staff while they are at your plantation. Please contact the team leaders for the respective clusters in the inspection plan (Refer to inspection plan).
Thank you and wish you success
