Burdekin's First 2020 Cut Report
First results from 2019 Burdekin fertilising season is coming in and the numbers look great!
There’s a new face in the Burdekin and he’s ready to help one of north Queensland’s most innovative companies change the way sugar cane farmers approach nutrient management.
Ingham-based company LiquaForce started developing and supplying liquid fertiliser to the cane industry more than a decade ago.
Demand for product has grown significantly in the Burdekin since then, prompting the appointment of Morgan Lewis as full-time representative for LiquaForce in the region.
Mr Lewis recently moved to the area from Tully, where he was an extension officer for Tully Cane Productivity Services Limited.
“In my early years after completing a Bachelor of Applied Science, I worked in a variety of positions and places, including Gympie, Gatton and Gayndah,” Mr Lewis said.
“I moved to the far north in 2013 and have absolutely fallen in love with the east coast of Queensland, and the agricultural industries here.
“I’m incredibly excited to be appointed as the first Burdekin member of the LiquaForce team and I look forward to helping farmers make the transition from traditional granular fertilisers to liquid fertilisers.
“I’m looking forward to putting my passion for agriculture and environmental management to good use in the Burdekin, and meeting more people from the community.”
