Your latest dose of plant and crop nutrients
Our farmers include those who are fully organic, bio-dynamic or 'no-till', and many are on the spectrum of sustainable, reparative and biological farming. For our ECTOL farmers, the resulting improvement to farm profitability is outstanding.
Our newsletter features successful ECTOL farming stories, products and equipment and new or relevant research.

Frost and Cold Shock Destroys Horticultural Yields, Quality and Profitability
Horticultural crops, which may need cold weather to set fruit, are often lost to late frost and sudden cold temperatures, impacting fruit development, size and yields. ECTOL Protect and Grow has been proven to protect crops and support yields for over 10 years, with extensive in-field and university trials.
ECTOL Organics is a new range of natural liquid and prilled plant nutrients
ECTOL Organics provides all the Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Calcium, Sulphur and trace elements needed for healthy crop, pasture, fruit, vegetable and animal production. ECTOL Organics are suitable for all organically certified or natural farming systems.
Post-harvest application of Nitrotain+TE can boost your spring bud nutrient levels
Research shows that 30-40% of new seasonal nitrogen requirements for grape vines and tree fruits comes from the previous seasons accumulation. Nitrogen stores in the bud will also determine the cell numbers and size potential of tree fruits. Autumn is the perfect time to consider building up your spring bud nutrient levels, by applying nitrogen before leaf fall.
Protect your wheat and cereal crops from frost and chill, for as little as $25/ha
Frost and chill present a major threat to wheat and other small grain yields, particularly from late-boot stage, to head emergence and flowering. However, there is evidence to suggest that natural plant biochemical extracts can be applied to help mitigate these stresses and potential loss to farmers – all without breaking the bank.
