Citrus orchardist Sandy McLay of Turnbury Orchards in Gayndah, Queensland, undertook a trial of Grow Green Technology products on his mandarins.
Previously Sandy had used traditional fertilisers for growing his fruit.
With the assistance from Grow Green, Sandy chose to test using two rows of the orchard.
Sandy started using Grow Green technology's Profert® and Xtend® . Sandy soon noticed a difference with softer soil and good new growth on his trees.
Turnbury Orchards enjoys a good water supply from an adjacent river and applies Profert® and Xtend® through the fertigation system which continuously drips in water using sprinklers which are approx 150-200 mm above ground.
Sandy has followed the recommended application of Profert® through the sprinkler system and gets 10 applications per drum. Each application fertilises about 340 trees.
Sandy states that following the use of Profert® he noticed softer and more aerated soil, good new growth on his trees and, as a direct result, a reduction in the amount of water now required.
Sandy has told Grow Green, "I am very happy with the product, and am now a regular customer".
