As with all BioAg nutrient programs, BioAg Viticulture nutrient programs are tailored to suit individual blocks.

BioAg  nutrient programs complement any previous programs on a block. Our beneficial soil health technology provides the added benefit of unlocking previously applied nutrients.

Our nutrient programs are suited to conventional or traditional farmers, through to certified organic farming.

BioAg programs usually consist of a mix of BioAg natural fertilisers and liquid microbial fermented cultures, traditional inputs (including water-soluble fertilisers), and micro-nutrients.

Sample nutrient program

Fertiliser Program Comments

BioAgPhos®
Lime (if required)
Potassium sulphate (if required)

BioAgPhos and lime provide the two most important nutrients for plant growth – phosphate (regulation within the plant and nutrient uptake) and calcium (growth and reproduction energy)

Fertiliser Program Inputs /ha

Annual application using a belt spreader into vine rows
BioAgPhos: 350–450 kg/ha
Lime: 400–500 kg/ha
Potassium sulphate: 20–40 kg/ha (if required)

Two Applications 21-days apart
