Crop Protection

BASF Crop Protection is a foundation sponsor of the LandWISE MicroFarm. Their sponsorship includes funding to help meet our operating costs, as well as providing the crop protection products needed for our five year programme.

Importantly, BASF Crop Protection and FruitFed Supplies staff are monitoring crop protection needs and making recommendations.

We recently got our own small sprayer for agrichemical application. This reduces the demand on contractors such as Haydn Greville who has been a strong supporter, fitting our half a hectare of application into his schedule as required. We also acknowledge the huge input by Mark Redshaw who took responsibility for onion spraying for two complete seasons.
