Advanced Crop Nutrition

Bioscience has vast experience and an in-house laboratory, allowing us to offer a complete plant nutrition service.  Because of our research experience in soil science and focus on developing sustainable systems, our clients are encouraged to employ crop nutrition and soil management systems which are environmentally friendly, efficient and self-sustaining.

Bioscience undertakes development and manufacture of a range of high performance fertiliser products and systems for specialist, high intensity horticulture applications including hydroponics, fertigation and exotic plant production. We have undertaken research and development in crop nutrition, pest and disease control, composting, soil microbial ecology and are exceptionally proficient at drafting Nutrient and Irrigation Management Plans, and have progressively become one of the leading Agriculture and Horticultural consultancies in the state.

 

Hydroponics

Bioscience has been a leading provider of technical services to hydroponic growers for over 15 years, and has amassed extensive experience in all types of systems from open benches through to greenhouse systems, using simple bag culture through to complete recirculation units. Our crop experience includes tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, herbs, capsicums, strawberries, flowers and other exotic crops.

Modern hydroponic systems are high yielding, producing top quality, clean, and in many cases, chemically free vegetables. It is an energy and water efficient industry which is environmentally friendly. Our clients operate throughout the state, included in environmentally sensitive areas and Groundwater Protection Zones.

The company provides a range of technical services from system design, nutrition management, pest and disease management, staff training and water quality.

We manufacture specialist products for the hydroponics industry including:

  • Calibration solutions for pH and EC meters.

  • pH adjustment up and down.

  • Fermentation based products which stimulate root microflora.

  • Nutrient packs and formulations suited to specific crops, growth conditions and grower aspirations.
