GAR Bennett, LLC is committed to helping growers feed the world by increasing crop yields with maximum water efficiency. The team has a combined 160-years of industry experience and resources to exceed grower expectations and keep as many acres in production in a post- SGMA world.
As of January 1, 2020, the company began business together as a result of the merger of Gar Tootelian Inc. and Bennett Water Systems. This brings together a complete product offering of services ranging from water systems to crop protection and regulatory compliance. The expanded services allow the company to provide customers the most comprehensive and qualified team of growing experts aimed at solving diverse production challenges.
Both family businesses share a commitment and longstanding relationship with growers in California’s Central Valley. Bennett’s 90-year history combined with GAR’s 70-year history make the company the valley’s oldest agricultural company, spanning more than five generations.
GAR Bennett services include pest control, crop nutrition, soil and tissue analysis, aerial imagery, water treatment, programs for regulatory compliance documentation and food safety certification. The company also offers expertise in water management such as drip irrigation, controlled environments, water banks, reservoirs, deep well pumps, wastewater filtration, and large-scale water systems to improve the sustainable use of water.
