The Leschenault Catchment Council (LCC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with soil health innovators Growise, to work together on trials of their scientifically-advanced microbial solution, Bactivate®.
With over 20 years of R&D and more than 9 years of field application in Australia, Bactivate is a unique, multi-function microbial solution that works to improve soil health and agricultural yield, unlock nutrient at the root zone and reduce the impact of certain pathogens and pests in the soil.
LCC Chairman, Adrian Azzari-Colley said, “Bactivate is an impressive product. I have used it on my block to see if it could help treat Marri Canker and it’s had very promising results.
I think it could have real benefits for producers in our catchment, and also reduce the amount of synthetic chemicals being released into our environment.”
Bactivate is not a fertiliser, but rather a proprietary blend of native beneficial bacteria and soil ameliorants in granule or liquid blend form.
There is no limit to where this natural, eco-friendly product has and can be used including turf, fruit trees, pasture, vineyards, native plants, vegetables and much more.
The two organisations will be hosting a free luncheon seminar in Augusta on 15 August. The seminar will provide an invaluable insight into the ways farmers can maximise pasture gains by incorporating advanced microbial solutions.
The guest speaker will be Glenn Perkins, National Manager of Bioactive Soil Solutions. Glenn is an Agronomist with a Master of Agribusiness and a passion for soil health, plant nutrition and farming efficiency.
Seats are limited, so RSVP by 13 August by emailing [email protected] or by phoning 9791 4773.
