LiquaForce proudly showcased its liquid application program to international delegates in September as part of the 2017 International Conference of the Australasia-Pacific Extension Network.

Conference attendees from around the world travelled to the Hinchinbrook Shire on the ‘Gone Troppo’ field day to see first-hand how cane growers have successfully converted from traditional granular fertilisers to Liquid Ezy3 products.

LiquaForce Managing Director Cameron Liddle said it was an exciting opportunity.

“It was great to be able to show the cutting edge best practice that is happening right here in the Hinchinbrook Shire to rural consultants from around the world,” Mr Liddle said.

“Liquid also offers significant environmental advantages as well as reductions in time in the paddock for farmers, and also increased strike rate.

“These aspects make liquid an attractive alternative for cane growers, as well as other farmers in the horticulture sector and Broadacre crops like rice.

“We are so enthusiastic to continue to share this story to a global audience and continue to raise the profile and acceptance of liquid fertilisers here in Australia.”
