Elders backs rice growers with specialist experience

The support you need to grow rice profitably is as close as your local Elders agronomist.

Whether your crop is drilled or aerially sown, Elders’ highly experienced team of specialist agronomists can assist with planning and protecting your planting.

You’ll find the right expertise and products to power production at Elders branches in Griffith, Coleambally, Finley, Deniliquin, Barham, Narrandera, Hay and Swan Hill. And because your local branch is part of an Australia-wide network, you’re guaranteed of reliable supply and service.

Elders Colleambally agronomist Allan Tonacia says he works with ricegrowers to plan the next crop, prepare the paddock, recommend the right chemistry, followed by nutrition, regular monitoring, water management and experienced, expert advice.

It is that experience, Deniliquin’s Adam Dellwo says, that makes Elders’ rice agronomy team different.

“When you ask an Elders agronomist for advice, there’s a good chance they’ve had 10 or 20 years of specialist experience in rice,” Mr Dellwo says.

“We leverage off the enormous amount of experience in the rice agronomy team to provide the best advice but we’re also always looking forward, too. Elders conducts on-farm trials and liaises closely with researchers to offer growers the newest and most innovative techniques.

“Our local agronomists also understand how rice fits into each grower’s whole farming system, too, so you get a crop that meets your wider objectives.”

The Elders agronomy team is proud to be a Koshi sponsor of the Australian Rice Growers Conference from 12 to 13 August 2021.
