Caason owned hay farm; Oolloo receives first shipment of Organic Fertilizer to support its “Organic in Conversion” objectives
The Oolloo Hay farm in the Northern Territory, managed by Caason Group subsidiary; Ti Tree Food & Fodder, had it’s very first consignment of organic fertilizer unloaded on site this week to make real the vision of the Group’s Managing Director; Mr Craig Astill. The farm will for the first time be using organic fertilizer in time for the first round of cropping for the 2023 financial year in October this year. “The operational practicality of the conversion process follows on from us benchmarking production using traditional non-organic fertiliser for the 2022 financial year” said Mr Astill.
Mr Astill added that he is confident of the new fertilizer regime delivering enhancing crop performance and resulting in better soil conditions in 2023 and beyond saying that “We are expecting to see improved protein and sugar levels in our crops and healthier soil conditions overall beginning as early as next year. The results should also see a reduction in water and fuel use further improving the financial performance of the operations”.
The Caason Group, in its continued quest to support R&D activities, looks forward to announcing these improvements with evidence supported by soil test results as a comparison from its previous years of operation.
