The Horticulture Program

Our extensive range of horticultural products are highly effective in the diverse array of Australian soils and lift performance in all horticultural systems.

Robustness is vital in horticultural systems. Our soil and foliar products build plant resilience to disease and robustness to handle weather extremes.

Petrik Soil Technology enables growers to deliver quality produce in high volume, at peak market pricing when crop stress is impacting the general market.

Efficiency improvements and input cost reductions are standout factors. These efficiencies translate to massive input and cost savings.

As Petrik Soil Technology improves the depth of rooting systems, growers notice changes in water efficiency and substantial power saving.

Our approach to nitrogen and phosphorous is a fundamental difference in how we achieve such outstanding results for our growers. As we improve the functionality of your soil, our technology allows us to access natural phosphorous reserves and utilise nature's nitrogen resource - which means we achieve yield increases with lower inputs.

Yield increases are consistently high. Our clients consistently achieve outstanding production results with higher brix and specific gravity. Our technology increases the weight of produce, without increasing volume - this means you achieve weight increases with lower carton packing, resulting in less transport damage too.

The Soil Building Products

The key products we use on horticulture crops are Digestor, Green Manure Plus and HeadStart.

DIGESTOR is our highest technology live soil amendment of powerful soil building inoculants that is a unique combination of microbes, fungi and bacteria.

It has a long shelf life and unlike others on the market, it is produced in closed vat systems, which means you achieve repeatable results.

Digestor contains species of biology that work in conjunction with both monocot and dicot plant root systems.

GREEN MANURE PLUS contains vital elements to support microbial activity and create synergistic links between plants and microbiology.

HEADSTART is a powerful seed and root stimulant. It provides vigour during the progression from germination to emergence and stimulates root growth.

The Foliar Products

Petrik has a powerful range of foliar products that support your crop during critical stages of growth and during times of environmental stress. Our foliar products help you achieve crop resilience and system robustness.

SETBEST maximises nutrient content of the plant coming into flowering or tuber initiation, increasing fruit set and retention.

RESCUE provides support to plants affected by herbicide damage, frost, or heat and water stress.

RESPONSE provides organically complexed trace elements that are vital for optimum growth.

IMPULSE FOLIARS help organically complexed nutrients achieve rapid uptake and distribution through the plant. The range of Petrik Impulse Foliars are formulated in specific nutrient combinations for your needs: Impulse Calcium Plus, Impulse Boron, Impulse Copper, Impulse Manganese, Impulse Iron and Impulse Custom.
