Our orchards are in South East Queensland.
These are managed by our expert staff and operated with modern machinery.
All the husking is done at Elgin Park, Cooran.
Insecticide free trials
We are trialling two blocks on a zero insecticide management plan. Basically, we time the release of beneficial insects to counter destructive insect pests. We are in the second year of a four-year trial process. It's too early to say if this will work, but the early results look promising. We are working closely with our suppliers at BioResources: www.bioresources.com.au
We have recently installed two 30kW systems at our Elgin Farm in Traveston, and our site at Johnson Court, Cooroy. We also installed a 'power correction factor' unit at Cooroy in order to improve business energy productivity.
Estimated lifetime CO2 reduction: 900 tonnes.
Estimated annual energy production: 42,740 kWh.
