LiquaForce Managing Director Cameron Liddle and newly appointed Burdekin rep Morgan Lewis recently attended the 2017 Burdekin Water Forum in Ayr.

The theme this year was Managing Irrigated Agriculture in Great Barrier Reef Catchments.

Cameron Liddle said the three day event was incredibly informative.

“The forum provided a great opportunity for farmers, extension officers, water managers, scientists and industry specialists like LiquaForce, to network and discuss key issues including water and nitrogen use efficiency (NUE),” Mr Liddle said.

“It was great to hear more about the research being done in the NUE space, as our own research in to our Liquid Ezy3 nutrient management products is proving to be really positive.

“Our products – PlantStarter, BigShot and Valu-N – have been independently proven by researchers at the University of Southern Queensland to reduce nitrogen leaching by 17 per cent compared to granular fertilisers, which is really exciting.

“Both scientific results and anecdotal evidence from growers also shows an increase in yield, better soil quality and a reduction in energy use and application costs.”
