Broadacre cropping

Agricultural land is also an integral part of the Australian ecosystem and has a significant environmental value, of which farmers are responsible for managing approximately 385 million hectares (or 58 per cent of Australia). Broadacre cropping is a significant farming practice and optimising soil health for a sustainable future is vital. To aid in the yield and quality goals of your broadacre crops BioAg can develop a complete program, or one that supplements your existing regime. 

Specific considerations for broadacre cropping

Access to phosphorus and combatting abiotic stresses and poor soil conditions are common issues across broadacre cropping.

By providing a sustained release form of phosphate in combination with starter fertiliser we ensure phosphorus, acritical nutrient for plant growth and energy transport, is available throughout the growing season.

Addressing macro and micro nutrient deficiencies, as well as aspects such as soil organic carbon, pH, nutrient cycling and nutrient transport, at planting and through the growing season, provides crops the best opportunity to achieve optimal yield and quality.
