BioAg Case Study: Broadacre Cropping and Pasture, NSW

Riverina grain grower, Wayne Hamblin, is earning handy premiums by meeting the growing demand for high energy, chemical-free grain from organic dairy farmers. Together with wife, Kim, and son, Chad, Wayne conducts a mixed cropping and livestock operation on “Big Tree”, Matong, about 70 km north-west of Wagga Wagga.

According to fourth-generation wheat grower, Matt McLean, the only thing different about this year’s crop was a decision to adopt a new plant nutrition program developed by innovative Narrandera-based company, BioAg. One of the company’s key products is BioAgPhos®, a reactive phosphate rock that has been treated with a proprietary microbial culture to provide an immediate and continuing source of plant-available phosphate. About half of the 15 percent phosphorus content is available immediately for plant use, while the remainder is slowly digested by the …
