Demos and trials
BioAg continues to participate in ongoing demonstrations with growers and independent trials where needed. The coming season is no different, with both long term trials and demos in pastures being planned or continued.

We are part way through a 3 year wheat and canola trial using a liquid biostimulant program, as part of Farmlink programs being run at Temora. Initial observations have been promising.
Peter Emerson (BioAg Area Manager for SE NSW and NE Victoria) is also running a large scale demonstration block with Gary Drew of Brocklesby, assessing the performance of liquid biostimulants. This is also over a period of a few years ensuring we gather adequate data. Early results have shown better root growth, and crop health between treated and untreated. The last two seasons have been so good that we haven’t seen significant differences in yield, so it will be better to look at longer term averages over a few more seasons.
We are also evaluating and planning on more pasture demonstration sites, to show the benefits of BioAg based fertilisers over conventional alternatives. These will include demonstrations in the Upper Murray and Holbrook, plus other regions as needed. If you would like to discuss running some larger scale demo strips, please contact us today.
