After a busy few months we are ready to commence supply of our BigShot liquid fertiliser for ratoon cane in the Burdekin.

By the end of July a new applicator will be located in the region, with local contractor Michael Brombal on board to offer contracting services to apply our products.

We are also working with two other interested contractors to apply product across the region.

In exciting news, LiquaForce has just been awarded funding as part of the RT3 Water Quality Grant Scheme to develop a Variable Rate Liquid Applicator. We believe this invention will deliver game-changing abilities to growers in applying nitrogen and phosphorous at specific rates across all paddock variables. We’ll be sure to keep you updated with progress.

In the meantime, if you’re interested in trialling or converting to liquid, please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss your requirements – we can develop an appropriate blend at a price point that works for you.

By the same token, if you’re keen to talk over purchasing an applicator versus converting your granular applicator for liquid use, we’re ready to help.

We’ll be holding demonstration days over the coming months and will also be holding a shed meeting at our future factory site at Clare in early August – we’ll let you know specifics soon.

R&D Update

There is some exciting R&D work coming up with a new silica product which promises to be 50 times more effective than Gypsum for displacing sodium and improving soil structure.

And keep watch for another high organic carbon product we are adding to our range which will offer a new option for improving soil health and lifting fertiliser efficiency.

We are also discussing trials with Australian Horticultural Research and hope to have this work underway either later this year or early next year. We are already achieving some really promising results with horticultural crops and we’re excited to have that work quantified.

In other new, Farmacist will be conducting BigShot versus granular trials to compare yield, cost and cost benefit, and water quality measures. We’ll bring you those findings once they’re complete.

Busy and exciting times ahead! Don’t hesitate to get in touch or share this update with anyone you think may be interested.
