It’s onward and upwards for Ausplow Farming Systems, according to its owner and managing director John Ryan AM.
Foremost in John’s mind was the outstanding finish by most DBS owners who reported surprisingly higher-yielding crops than forecast.
“The dry start to this year again showed the value of the DBS in achieving good plant establishment even in dry conditions,” John said. “Deeper cultivation below the seed is paramount to ensure roots have easier access to subsoil moisture and this was the case this year with owners reporting crops hanging on and obviously accessing summer moisture that fell in January and February.”
John already is in planning mode for next year with several exciting trials already on the drawing board along with a ‘proof of concept’ trial which John says could be a game-changer for broadacre crop-establishment.
“I’m looking forward to another interesting year as we continue our journey with DBS owners to improve all aspects of crop establishment,” he said.
“We move towards 2019 with a very healthy order book which reinforces our leading position in the market.
“And our aim is to stay on top, driven by our growing relationships with our owners and our desire to improve our technology.
“I would like to wish my staff, the farming community, our suppliers and friends a very special Happy Christmas.
“It’s a special family I’m very proud of and I hope everybody enjoys a good break and re-boots for 2019.”
