Incitec Pivot Fertilisers (IPF) has today announced it will invest $38 million in acquiring a majority stake in Australian Bio Fert Pty Ltd (ABF) and build Australia’s first largescale plant to develop and deliver a new category of sustainable fertilisers for Australian farmers.

A new multidisciplinary Australian Research Council (ARC) Research Hub for Smart Fertilisers at the University of Melbourne will develop a new class of fertilisers and inhibitors for Australian farmers.

Incitec Pivot Fertilisers (IPF) has today announced it has signed a long-term agreement which sees its Nutrient Advantage Laboratory become the exclusive supplier of laboratory services to Precision Agriculture Pty Ltd from November 2020.

Incitec Pivot Fertilisers (IPF) is working hard to deliver its essential products and services to farmers during the Coronavirus outbreak, so that farmers can plant crops and help feed Australians.

Congratulations to our Horticulture Heroes

Congratulations to those who beat the rush and secured delivery in February.

Sweet potatoes have been earmarked for a new ENTEC® fertiliser trial in Bundaberg this season. Rob Dwyer, Incitec Pivot Fertilisers’ Agronomist – Tropical Systems, is excited about the potential for ENTEC to reduce nitrogen losses, lift sweet potato yields and improve quality.

Yield increases following subsoil manuring are more likely to be driven by the nutrients supplied than the deep ripping process or the manure, according to a major subsoil manuring experiment in south-eastern Australia.

Agronomists were asked to consider the impact of sulphur leaching in an informative session led by Dr Chris Guppy during Incitec Pivot Fertilisers’ recent Agronomy Community forums.
