Eco-friendly fertilisers for sustainable farming (CRC-P administered by Sustainable Organic Solutions Pty Ltd) (2018–2021)

Abstract:
This project will trial a new eco-friendly fertiliser technology, containing plant growth promoting rhizobacteria and innovative adaptive-release organic fertiliser, in tropical agriculture and horticulture (sugarcane, avocado and macadamia). This unique formulation is expected to reduce fertiliser costs, improve plant growth, and minimise the run-off of nutrients from tropical farms to waterways.
