A closer look at the crop using Greenbelt organic fertiliser,

The grower reported a 20% increase in yield for the beans grown using Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser. Staff processing the beans commented asking where did these beans come from? as they were larger and healthier looking than the other beans.

The grower has subsequently put in a crop of corn, he commented that the corn on the land where Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser was applied on the previous crop is approximately 30 cm taller than the corn grown on the field where non organic fertilisers were used. The message here is that Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser continues to pay dividends to farmers . Once in the soil, the biology in our product assists in repopulating the soil with beneficials to restore productivity, soil health and increasing nutrient availability to plants. Using conventional chemical fertilisers on the other hand actually reduces the beneficials and life in the soil adding no long term value to the farmer.

Another great batch.. Rob From Kalfresh

This image shows a closer view of the neighbour’s wheat crop from the adjacent image. There are obvious differences between the condition of this crop and the crop in the adjacent image.

This chemically fertilised crop has failed

and will need to be turned back into the soil.

On a neighbouring farm, and subject to the same environmental factors, this is the resultant crop where Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser has been introduced.

The Activator has been 40 years in development and is unique on the market.

Compost may have similar amounts of nutrients but it is not as active and inorganic fertilisers have N,P and K and possibly a couple of other macro or micronutrients but no soil rejuvenating properties.

The main aim of Greenbelt is soil rejuvenation. These results are only after one application of one ton per hectare at planting. The results will only improve as the soil is further rejuvenated.

The above crop has been given green mulch, and while the crop looks to be of reasonable health, note the height of the crop is around the farmer’s knee height

This is the resultant crop where Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser has been introduced. Of note is the additional height (to that of the adjacent green mulch crop) of the crop which is almost to the farmer’s waist. The crop in the above image can also be seen to be much denser

The harvest was completed last week with outstanding results using greenbelt organic fertiliser. We received this text from the grower.

Most of the wheat crops in the district went about 1 tons per hectare.

Our harvest using greenbelt organic fertiliser went 2.5 t per hectare, outstanding result. Considering there was no spring rain.




Robert from Kalfresh says  The chopper driver said this maize is the heaviest he ever cut, 30+ tonnes/ ac!
This field was beans last autumn,  speed tilled once and planted this corn.
A great outcome using Greenbelt Bio- Fertiliser i would say.
I have never seen corn so high with cobs set above my head!

The 8th Green that was previously riddled with fairy rings.
Now the playability is the same throughout and the rings are fading.
This as after only 2 applications of the 1:10 GreenBelt-Bio:Sand mix.

Brendon told me he went into a meeting last week with the professionals and one said they all agreed the course is in the best condition for the longest period that they have ever seen it in. They are all out playing on it every chance they get.
Brendon says that Greenbelt is now the foundation of his green keeping program and this improvement is due to the use of Greenbelt Biofert.

As I keep saying we have the means to supply economical soil rejuvenation. That is what we supply all our clients, whether turf or agricultural. We have a method to start and then maintain a process to rejuvenate the soil and once achieved all other products can be used to get the ultimate crop or turf condition if needed.

These photos below are of a green that is planted with 328 turf the forerunner to the hybrid Novotek. It will be replanted as funds permit.
328 does not like the heat.
Brendon has hit it with 20 litres of foliar diluted in 650 litres of water.
The islands of green are the regrowth.
To show you how good this is, in previous years the whole green would have been brown.
In contrast the good looking greens are the Novotek that is raging and even this would normally be showing signs of stress.

Letter From Rob at Kalfresh     27/04/2016


As you know I have been very cautious with my implementation and testing of Greenbelt but it has always been more about the soil health journey than a silver bullet. Consequently, in our year one trials and commercialization I was happy to match our current yields replacing our chemical fertilizers. This proved time and again to be the case.

We are starting our third year with the Greenbelt and our cropping experience varies with our crop types. May I offer the following details of our journey to date –
Carrots – Carrots are a high yielding crop removing around 75t/ ha of crop. In the first year we use 2t/ha of greenbelt and a half rate of base fert. This produced yields of historical average. The next year we trialed 4t/ha of greenbelt as base fert with no chemical and again matched our yields. Consequently this year we are using 4t/ ha of greenbelt and nothing else. Our soil tilth and bed preparation this year however is astoundingly good.

Onions – Onions are another high yielder. Went through the same procedures as with carrots. However last year, our first year of 4t/ ha of Greenbelt our marketable yields almost doubled. From 45t the year before to an average of 75t/ ha. Our top yield being 90t/ ha. An exceptional result, actually a complete game changer in the financial viability of onions.

Green Beans – green beans commonly yield 5 – 7.5t/ ha in the Queensland season. I have been happy to maintain these yields with 2t/ha of Greenbelt. What has changed is the resilience of our crops in the heat, wet and insect attack of the Qld summer. Right now silverleaf whitefly is giving us a real problem. Other growers are experiencing crop losses of up to 60% even after pouring on chemicals. Our crops however are clean and yielding up to 10t/ ha. Difficult to explain apart from the compounding effects of Greenbelt.
Last year we actually had a 3.5ha field of beans completely submerged in a flash flood. In 25 years of growing beans I have never seen them survive inundation, but this crop went on to flower and set a 6t/ha crop.

Pumpkins – Pumpkins are another summer crop that are prone to insect and weather effects. Again at 2t/ha I have seen Greenbelt improve resilience and yield during this difficult growing window. In fact we just harvested 30t/ha of JAP pumpkin last week, while other fields in the area have failed to produce.

Maize – the results of Greenbelt with maize crops have been astounding. This year we grew our maize on 4t/ ha of Greenbelt and no other fertilizer. Our green chop yielded 80t/ha which was a new district record. The plants were over 13 ft high with the cobs set at 6ft from the ground. We also harvested some as wet grain 25%, which yielded at 21 – 24t/ha. This equates to 16.8 – 19t/ ha dry. Far and away the heaviest maize we have ever harvested.

Fungus – one of the most noticeable changes on the farm has been the return of fungus to the fields. In our cover cropping and grain rotations where we leave residues on the top, thick white decomposing fungus threads through the soil. An amazing sight. I have seen some worms returning but our powered tillage for veges is pretty hard on them.

Sorry this is a bit ‘wordy’, but it is the best way to present it.

Cheers, I’ll send some photos.


Trials were undertaken by Soil Wealth and Integrated Crop Protection.

Horticulture Innovation Australia Limited fund Soil Wealth and Integrated Crop Protection are funded using the vegetable industry levy and funds from the Australian Government. Applied Horticultural Research and RMCG jointly ,run the Soil Wealth and Integrated Crop Protection program. IPM Technologies is a delivery partner for Integrated Crop Protection.

Soil Wealth and Integrated Crop Protection delivers integrated information on vegetable soil management and crop protection practices that help growers and advisers use and support profitable and sustainable vegetable production.

Our client, Robert Hinrichsen at Kalfresh (located at Kalbar Qld ) and the Soil Wealth team are working together on the challenges of soil compaction, surface sealing and the soil-borne disease pythium.

At the Kalbar site, demonstrations were conducted on the potential benefits of variable application rates of bio-fertiliser, cover cropping and a beneficial bacteria (QST 713).

Greenbelt Bio-fertiliser was used in this trial along with

  1. Controlled Traffic Farming (permanent beds)
  2. Greenbelt Bio-fertiliser and another biological fertiliser
  3. Cover crops
  4. Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

The Graphs below show the Average Tonne Total Gross Per Acre and Units produced per acre.

Total Gross Per Acre


The results showed that using Greenbelt Bio-Fertiliser at a rate of 2 tonne per hectare along with a cover crop outperformed using NPK chemical fertiliser and standard farming practices. An additional gross 680 kgs of produce was grown per Acre in the trial.

The second graph compares the total units of carrots produced per acre

Units per Acre


The trial showed again that using Greenbelt Bio-Fertiliser at 2 tonne per hectare along with a cover crop out performed using NPK chemical fertiliser and standard farming practices.

This trial demonstrates that the use of Greenbelt Bio-fertiliser along with other innovative farming practices produces strong results when compared to using chemical fertilisers. Growers need not pay a penalty in yield when using our Bio-fertiliser . Great results can be achieved by Greenbelt Bio-fertiliser on it’s own and is also complimentary to other products.
