LawrieCo is working with farms across Australia to help produce better quality soil and plant performance that will enable them to produce better quality crops, higher yields, healthier animals and importantly, increase water retention.  All of which result in greater returns for the farmer.

We believe for any farmer, soil is our greatest asset.

The changes farms we work with see; Better quality soil enables farms to improve performance of their production and returns. For cropping and horticulture, the quality of the soil impacts the bottom line from yield to shelf life.  For graziers, soil quality impacts the health, fertility and growth rate of animals and eventually, the bottom line.

Smarter, more efficient farming methods are necessary to ensure profitable, sustainable farm enterprise and overcome the key concerns we see on farms we work with. Those key concerns are: growing more with less, water scarcity and the changing climate, and a significant decline in soil quality.

Our technology works with already established fertiliser techniques and programs to balance out the nutrition and biology of the soil. Our solid and liquid fertilisers are easy to apply, and are derived from natural materials such as bacteria, plants, fungi, minerals and trace elements. All of our products are a result of extensive research and development, with more than 20 years of successful results across Australia.

The team of LawrieCo experts provide analysis, advice and nutritional planning to farms and distribution partners across a range of industries including: broadacre cropping, pasture, dairy, horticulture, viticulture, tree crops, turf and landscape.

For more than 20 years, LawrieCo has worked and continues to work to develop next generation nutrition and biological products.Our products have been specifically designed to help improve soil quality in a way that protects the farms greatest asset and importantly, increases the return on investment for farmers for years to come.

Going beyond the yield; As farmers, we are passionate about seeing the industry in Australia succeed. We are working to develop initiatives for farmers that would see them generate income from the carbon they sequester in their soil.

Central & South SA Area ManagerPeter Davidson, LawrieCo Field Consultant

0407 992 532  peter@lawrieco.com.au

Originally from Keith in the upper south-east of South Australia, where I ran a mixed crop and livestock property. In 2009 I decided to seek new challenges that led to LawrieCo and Biological Farming with the role of field consultant. I find the work very rewarding and feel that I make a difference with sustainable and profitable agriculture.

 

 

Rodney Capon

Northern SA, NSW & Vic Area Manager

Rodney Capon, LawrieCo Field Consultant0409 822 011  rodney@lawrieco.com.au

Rodney is originally from Adelaide where he started out as a landscape gardener. He moved to the Sunraysia area in Northern Victoria / Southern New South Wales in the late 90s where he was involved in several large scale horticulture developments with a key focus on soil improvement and fertility. As part of his many roles he was involved in the importation and trials of humate plant and biological based soil conditioners. Rodney then entered into the nursery industry where he continued to learn the importance of soil carbon and soil biology. In the mid 2000s he changed direction and took control of a large dry land cropping / grazing property also comprising irrigation and some horticulture. Here he experimented with more humates and biological inoculants having outstanding results. He is excited to now be part of the LawrieCo team and to helping others gain the rewards of healthy soil.    

 

Bill Ambaras

Riverland, Central and Northern SA Area Manager

Bill Ambaras - LawrieCo Area Manager0458 811 222 bill@lawrieco.com.au

Bill originates from the Riverland region having grown up on a mixed orchard enterprise and began working in the fertiliser industry in 2003, where the passion for healthy soils and sustainable growing began.

Bill has extensive experience with growers in broadacre cropping, horticulture, tree crops and viticulture. He has been involved in agronomy and assisting growers with all aspects of production and protecting crops for a number of years. His work has involved working with growers extensively to utilise liquid fertilisers and bio stimulants, where he gained a greater understanding of seaweeds and silicas.

He is passionate about sustainable farming and growing and hopes he can share some of his knowledge with others.

 

Bill Greenslade

BManAg; GradDipEd; DipFinServ

Yorke Peninsula, Wimmera and Southern Malleee Area Manager

Bill Greenslade, LawrieCo Area Manager0438 159 656 BillG@lawrieco.com.au

Bill has had wide ranging experience over 30 years in the rural industry which covers key areas such as agronomy and marketing. Much of Bill’s work has been within the fertiliser industry having had time in both retail and wholesale businesses.

Bill’s sound knowledge of nutrition and soil science complements the practical application of fertiliser programs in the field, particularly biological and carbon-based products as well as trace elements.

He sees “one of the big challenges for the Australian grain industry is maintaining quality, particularly wheat protein. Over 30 years, soil nitrogen profiles have been in significant decline as productivity increase and rotations tighten.”

In today’s farming systems, he works with producers to make every post a winner, in-regards to gaining maximum benefit from applied nutrients as well as building general soil health. “Applying more was better” was the thought process in his early days as an agronomist, nowadays efficiency is the aim and environmental responsibilities are considered.  This comes from soil health and the nutrient holding and releasing capacity of our soils.

Bill understands biologicals are an emerging space and there is still a lot to be learnt, he works toward paddock truthing and the sees the effective application is becoming easier, so rates and frequencies are increasing. He sees long term opportunities as the carbon economy develops, opening up new markets and highlights the strong link to soil health as a key driver in developing farmer participation in these offsets.

Bill is based in Bordertown, which is central to SA and Victoria’s major cropping, livestock and horticultural regions and looks forward to servicing the resellers, agronomists and growers within his area.
