The team, who manage 900 hectares of wine grapes as well as dry acre and irrigated broad acre agriculture, had the goal of improving the soils health in order to see benefits such as higher yields and a better quality of product.
The BioAg program they utilise consists of BioAgPhos, Soil & Seed, Balance & Grow, and Fruit & Balance which has provided increases of both plant-available P as well as total P.
Through the program the group are aiming to reduce the reliance on conventional inputs, reach targets earlier in the season, and increase the colour levels of their red grape varieties.

Tony started trialling BioAg programs in early 2003 and soon adopted these to his entire crop, utilising the products BioAgPhos, Balance & Grow, Soil & Seed, and Fruit & Balance.
Through the continued use of the program, Tony has found his citrus to be of a consistently high yield that is similar year to year and the fruit is also of a consistent size which is in the range desired by the consumer.
Grape yields have similarly been of high volume and quality, while at the same time reducing the plant canopy and therefore water consumption.
The fruit produced is of premium quality and Tony has in turn received premium prices.
