Scott Chambers

Mr. Scott Chambers of Bundella, NSW continues to use Madura Guano Gold-Kwik Start as the basis of his fertiliser cropping and is really happy with it. There is a lot of biology and other benefits happening as well according to Scott and he is extra pleased with the crops progress this season.

The chickpeas, although later sown this year, look exceptional, and the nodulation is just unbelievably good now that they are flowering. They have not required any dithane unlike other local crops due to their exceptional performance and health. The grass crops of triticale, oats and canary seed (for domestic bird seed) are all growing very well as well, despite cutting back the nitrogen application to 30% of what was previously used. Soil tests have indicated a need for sulphur and boron as well, and so some gypsum and boron has been applied with the Madura Guano Gold-Kwik Start. This combination has helped capitalize on these heavy black soils which otherwise have problems with calcium – magnesium rations. Scott says that there are major benefits from the silica component of the Madura Guano Gold-Kwik Start and the interactions bringing about this improvement in soil biology as well as the readily available nutrients. The silica pulls the cations out of the otherwise tightly bound heavy clay soils and we are very happy indeed with the results. The Madura Guano Gold-Kwik Start has been an easy granulated product to use without any handling problems.

Being so far away from our markets, durability is critical and the Silica is really good in terms of hardening up the skin and making the melons better to transport.Ord River WA irrigator David Menzel-Barradale
The problem with many organic fertilisers is that they have very low rates of nutrients, meaning you need to put out high rates. A product like Guano Gold has 12pc P, whereas Guano Sulphur Gold has 10.5pc P, obviously with additional sulphur. These figures compare very favourably with something like a single superphosphate product. Agronomically, it’s a good product in any setting, not just for organic producers.Garry Allison, Landmark Agronomist. Mount Gambier, SA
For the broadacre croppers, Guano Gold works really well in paddocks where they have had issues with nutrient tie-up. He said the majority of synthetic P products have large rates of water soluble P. The problem with that is that you can have instances where it ends up tying up zinc in the soil so you run into problems with zinc deficiencies. Not only does the slow release nature of the Guano Gold product work well over the entire season, it also contains zinc for the crop as well as the other nutrients.Moree agronomist Rob Drewitt
We strongly recommend the Guano Gold products to fellow farmers if they are looking at improving their Calcium and Silica levels using various methods of application such as foliar and granular.James and Aimee Thomas Falkirk Macadamia Farm
I have recommended Guano Gold products for 20 years and in all cases had excellent long-term results increasing in pasture productivity.Paul Baguely - PB Ag Consulting
They are high analysis products so you get your nutrients without having to put too much fertiliser out.Anthony Beutel, Googa Farm Organics
We have known since the 1930s that phosphorus is one of the main elements required to grow a successful crop of not just the (flax) plant but the seed. It was one of those products that was first out in a granular type form and it was so much easier to get an even coverage over the ground, rather than a powder form. Later on the product became a little more refined, so we could put it through our air-seeder. We also broadcast some of it, prior to seeding, when we are cultivating ground. The products have great characteristics in relation to phosphate and silica, which is exactly what we need for flax.Waltanna Farms flax-seed farmer & Ambassador for Guano Australia, Michael Nagorcka
