Research and Development
Research proves that the proper health and function of soils and plant physiology improves nutrient uptake and utilisation, supporting and enhancing plant and animal growth - and ultimately our health. Having a sound nutritional and bio-stimulant programme leads to improved nutrient density, reduced input costs and ensures better on-farm productivity.
Smart biological management can alter the nutritional quality and palatability of pasture species, row and fruit crops. Insect and disease pressures are directly and indirectly related to soil health and nutrition. Our innovative solutions to soil and plant care achieve quality and yield without compromise to the environment and help to exceed regulatory.
