Our Fertilisers

Our Geographically-Blended Smart Release Fertiliser

Dusty Clay Smart Release fertiliser is specially designed specifically to suit soil types in various locations across Australia for maximum effectiveness. As grain farmers and descendants of Australia’s first free-settled farmer, Thomas Rose, Dusty and Clay have extensive expertise in developing fertilisers to maximise yield and plant health.

With the family running and managing farms in different geographical locations, we grew to understand the complexities of dealing with different soil types and environments.

Our fertilisers are coated with Biology. The blend of beneficial biology activates the relationship between fertiliser, soil and plants. Building stronger root structures and allowing full active connection to the fertilisers attributes. Maximising the soils architecture, condition, and usable storage of water and nutrients.

Whether you’re after luscious green grass or want high yielding plants, our Smart Release fertiliser will get the job done effectively. To order, call , email us, or visit your local retailer.

Our Specialised Approach:

It’s no secret that the type of soil and plant life changes across different landscapes. Due to differences in rain fall, topography and many other factors, the chemical balance of soil varies wherever you go. We’ve noticed, however, that this often isn’t accounted for when selecting a fertiliser. Instead of being designed for the mineral balance of your soil, off-the-shelf fertilisers are ‘one-size-fits-all’ or overly plant specific. Even a lot of premium garden blends don’t take this into account – you’re just applying pricier product that might be ill-suited to your soil makeup.

In the agricultural industry, we use satellite, biomass, infra-red imagery, as well as other testing to ascertain what the different kinds of soil we’re working with are. For our fertilisers, we’ve adapted the same research techniques to develop special blends for regional geographical areas based on their soil type and the environmental factors that they’re subjected to. Our fertiliser ingredients are attained from natural sources, most of which are organic, including various rock minerals , microbes and humates.

Our tailored Smart-Release fertilisers are designed to keep your plants and grass looking beautiful year-round. What a lot of people don’t realise is that weeds can be predominantly choked out. When your lawn is in good health it has the chance to compete against undesirable species, weeds and pests.

Benefits of our Balanced Smart-Release fertiliser over other fertilisers include:

  • Less re-application frequency and maintenance
  • Pet safe (remember to disperse the fertiliser properly to avoid them eating it)
  • Won’t burn your grass
  • Can’t dilute fertiliser to the point of ineffectiveness when watering in
  • Fantastic for edible products, like grain and vegetables
