South Australian agribusiness supplier & Eco-Ag consultants Bio-Tech Organics, is a pioneer in biological farming methods, having commenced operations in 1990 selling fish fertilisers and humate based materials to local horticulture growers in South Australia.
Today we are providing farmers with state-of-the-art carbon-based
fertiliser products, specialist biological inputs and practical knowledge in sustainable farming systems developed by the company over 26 years.
The Virginia Biological Farming Centre sits in the hub of the northern Adelaide plains
horticulture district with some 700 hectares of greenhouse crops and many more hectares of potatoes, onions, carrots, olives, almonds, cut flowers, wine grapes, cereals and pasture, on the doorstep.
With intensive, chemically-based farming being practiced here for more than 50 years there are many problems being faced by local farmers, particularly the build-up of salinity and resistance to pesticides and fungicides by pest species, a major problem in the district. The adoption of biological farming methods is being made by many growers, with tremendous benefits to production, quality and environmental issues being achieved.
