Andrew Dalglish and his father Charlie have been customers of BioAg for some 20 years, originally in NSW’s Riverina region, and these days in the Northern Territory. Andrew is the owner of Foxalicious Fruit, a Katherine based organic mango and asparagus farming operation and premium fresh produce packing company.
Andrew has been interested in the biological/organic side of farming for a long time and sees working on the health of his soil as the foundation of his business success. In 2020 he won the Territory NRM Farmers and Fishers Sustainability Award for his coordinated soil health and an organic plant nutrition program.
“If you have healthy soils, then you’re going to have a healthy plant or animal, which ultimately we humans eat, so that’s got to be better for us. Get your soils right, and the rewards are outstanding.
“I am all for getting the billions of living organisms underneath our feet to do all the hard work 24/7 to help me with my business,” says Andrew.
He uses BioAg certified organic PotPhos annually as a side dress for his organic produce, and fertigates Soil & Seed continuously when applying nutrients through his fertigation system.
