BioAg markets a range of biologically-active nutrients and programs that help to produce a living, healthy and balanced soil for optimum plant and livestock productivity. Developed specifically for Australian farming systems, BioAg solid and liquid nutrients are suitable for use in all cropping, grazing and horticultural situations. The BioAg approach combines the best practices and products from conventional farming, organics, biodynamics and homeopathy to deliver successful biological farming systems that increase the efficiency and profitability of plant and livestock production.
Besides providing a source of plant-available nutrients, particularly phosphate and calcium, BioAg products increase microbial mass and diversity by delivering a complex food supply directly to the “foodweb”. These products also incorporate a range of other nutrients and vitamins, including sulphur, magnesium, potassium, trace elements (iron, zinc, copper, boron, manganese, molybdenum, cobalt, nickel, selenium, sodium, chlorine), vitamins B, C, & E, Silica (Horsetail), Dandelion and other herbs, blocks and glue for efficient nutrition.
Once the biological system becomes self-sustaining within three to five years, producers will begin to notice a visible difference in the health of their soils, plants and livestock. Observed benefits include:
- Balanced, fertile, productive soils
- Improved soil structure, water infiltration and retention
- Reduced stubble retention problems.
- Improved germination and crop establishment
- Reduced weed competition and crop disease
- Improved populations of beneficial insects
- Improved resistance to insects, disease and climatic extremes
- Higher quality crops and pastures
- Healthier, more productive livestock
- Improved efficiency and profitability
Our customers also obtain greater gross margins through fewer inputs of conventional fertilisers and pesticides, fewer passes across the paddock in the tractor and greater fuel efficiency during tillage as the soil is easier to work. The bottom line is increased yield and quality in cropping and horticultural situations, and increased growth rates, fertility and animal health in grazing enterprises.
