Innovators in Mallee Farming

Working with you, to develop Mallee farming systems, to grow the Mallee’s future.

Our expertise live in Mallee farming.  Our team is dedicated to helping farmers and organisations develop agriculture practices in the region – though innovation, trials, technology, partnerships and passion.

Focussed on improving the Mallee broadacre farming sector

With decades of experience helping to grow research and extension projects in the region, we believe in a strong future for the industry.

We’ve got all the equipment

We have all the equipment, technology and machinery to implement research trials, which replicate farming best practice and provide quality data. This includes tractors, seeders, sprayers, harvesters, trucks, soil sampling and monitoring equipment and a well equipped laboratory.

We’re always innovating

We design and invest in equipment and machinery that ensures our work is using the best technology available and is representative of farmer best practice. We are industry leaders in developing and adapting new methods of extension and communication of our work to farmers.

More than 50 years’ combined experience

Collectively, our team has more than 50 years’ experience in implementing small plot research trials, paddock-scale trials and demonstrations, resource monitoring programs, field days, workshops, seminars and development of extension and communication products.
