Horticulture

Horticulture is Australia’s second largest rural production industry after wheat, and includes fruits, vegetables, and nursery/ornamental crops.

The majority of produce is grown for the domestic market, with horticultural exports making up approximately 13% of total value of production.

Fruits dominate horticultural exports with apples, oranges and table grapes being the most important while a wide range of vegetables are grown. Due to the range of climatic conditions and growing regions in Australia it is possible to have produce supplied throughout the year.

We look to enhance the soils’ health and fertility as a key strategy to developing more intensive cropping for the farmer. It is equally important to address the specific needs of a crop, as it is to address the challenges posed during each season.

For those reasons, BioAg cropping programs are tailored to suit each individual farm and paddock by analysing the results of soil and /or tissue tests alongside the location, history and characteristics of the block, as well as your budget and goals for yield and quality.

Below is a comprehensive list of winter crops and relevant BioAg sample programs.
