Reintroduce cellulose digesting fungi to your farm
Build soil organic carbon
What are The Benefits?
The fungal species used in LawrieCo’s residue management program are hardy, drought resistant and selected from Australian soils.
Fungi is the Carbon Converter
The graph shows how each organism uses carbon when breaking down dry plant matter.
Dry and Unpalatable Pasture?
Dry pasture matter is highly unpalatable for stock due to the cellulose component which prevents animal digestive systems from assimilating nutrients and proteins.
The fungi break down the cellulose component of dry plant matter and make the protein and nutrients more available. Stock health and condition can be maintained and stock will generally prefer to graze on residue management program treated pastures.
This cost effective approach reduces the need for supplementary feeding giving obvious benefits in both labour and feeding costs.
Suitable for applying to stubble, pastures or dry matter. Download the flyer for details >>>
While not always visible in the paddock, fungi breakdown the cellulose component of dry matter.

“Our stubble load was too great to manage. We had toxic effect of wet straw killing the next crop.
So we introduced a program of brewing cellulose digestive fungi to help break down the straw which also became a valuable food source for the sheep.”
Brian Wilson, Mingay VIC
