After a sensational Lunch with the AFR interview with Jemima Whyte, The Maverick column […]

Build Soil & Crop Health for Tomorrow – Today

We have been traveling across much of the East Coast and South Australia the last few weeks and viewing an array of crops at various growth stages.  There have been some areas that have experienced a considerable amount of rain and the soils remain very damp and others that would love to just get any. […]

Get Great Fruit

Accelerate Maturation For Vineyard and orchard owners or managers it is getting close to harvest.  Getting the best quality and yields is paramount and many growers are asking about the different options for increasing the maturation of vineyard blocks and trees. The question is, how can they accelerate improvements in colour, sugar and phenolic levels? […]

Let’s Help Your Plants through the Heat

Helping your crops through the heat Summer is hitting hard as normal with Hot and Hotter weather. When crops are under stress, including heat stress, they become less efficient in processing nutrients as their metabolism (photosynthesis, respiration, and the synthesis and degradation of organic compounds) slows down. So what can we do to help crops […]

The Higher the Sodium, the Higher Need for Calcium

The Impact Calcium has on Sodium Previously we have stated the importance of calcium and the balance of nutrients in soils being the key for maximum crop production and ultimate soil health.  In this blog we look into the impact calcium has on sodium. This is an important example of nutrient balance and the effect […]

4 Keys to Choosing the Right Raw Material

When it comes to purchasing nutrients how do you know which is the best choice of raw material, particularly if there are several options for seemingly the same product?

Nitrogen by tonnes is the biggest one used in crop production closely followed by phosphorus and potassium. Surprisingly, sulphur, is one element that in […]

Zinc and its Role in Crop Production

Understanding what inhibits the uptake and translocation of zinc will help us to supply this important micronutrient during time of peak demand. Most people recognise that with many soils across Australia, and the world for that matter, have varying zinc deficiencies.  But the function of zinc, and many trace elements, is an area where it […]
