Recommended program to maximise recovery of trees in flood affected areas.
Plants are most susceptible to frost damage in Spring. Kelps provide an extra degree or two tolerance to frost ... see our data.
Providing supplementary N that is cost-effective has been a fundamental challenge for organic growers.
Humates improve nitrogen retention in the soil. Nitrogen loss is dramatically reduced using humates with fertiliser.
Some grape varieties are difficult to colour up. Research has shown Vitazyme helps colour up grapes.
We've summarised the latest 2012 data on organics in agriculture in Australia and overseas.
Here's how to establish orchards and vineyards as future profitability is also estabished at this time.

An outline of some of the processes we go through in assisting farmers move to more biological systems.
Crop rotation can increase yields by 10 to 15%
You can judge the health of your soil by the number of earthworms in it.
Humates have been shown to improve phosphate availablity - phosphates are prone to fixation in the soil.
Calcium is the leading soil nutrient and is important for fruit quality.
Nutrient cycling is the breakdown of organic matter by soil microbes.
The major difference is solubility of nutrients.
We provide comprehensive organic management plans.
We undertake feasibility studies to assess the profitability of setting up an organic property.
In many tree and vine crops there is a period of root activity after harvest where it can be beneficial to apply N and P.
The conversion to organic growing is generally straight forward once you are committed to sustainable agriculture.
