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.

Protect your wheat and cereal crops from frost and chill, for as little as $25/ha


August 2020

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.

Frost and Cold Shock Destroys Horticultural Yields, Quality and Profitability


July 2020

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.

Post-harvest application of Nitrotain+TE can boost your spring bud nutrient levels


March 2020

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.

Late Frost & Cold Shock



August 2019

With winter nearly over, now’s not the time to be complacent with frost and cold shock. 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.

The demand for Nitrogen:
Wheat and Small Grain Yields


June 2019

If you have winter crops in the ground, your Nitrogen program is one of the key factors impacting yields and profitability. It is just as important as sunshine and rain
