Noel Garcia

Chief Operating Officer


Noel Garcia, CCA, serves as TPS Labs Chief Operating Officer and Senior Consultant. He is a Certified Crop Advisor under the American Society of Agronomy. His career started at the USDA-ARS developing imagery acquisition software involving video and satellite images, image processing and geographical information systems. He was recruited by E.K. Chandler, to write software to manage and report raw laboratory data.

Reporting laboratory data soon escalated to converting Chandler’s interpretive abilities to intuitive software. Garcia also conducted field trials on various pop-up fertilizers, humic/fulvic acids, hormones, compost/ teas and other biostimulants with a variety of crops. Writing interpretive software required Garcia to gain an intimate understanding of soil and water chemistry, soil microbiology, plant physiology, how fertilizer compounds affect plant uptake and how to maximize plants’ genetic potential with nutritional balance at specific stages of growth.

Recently he studied the effects of soil biology on plant and soil health and structure for the remediation of saline and sodic soils. Additionally, he researches new products that can help remediate the declining quality of today’s soils, improve water use efficiency and grow more nutrient dense foods.
