Sow a high performing Brachiaria pasture or improve soil nitrogen with tropical and subtropical legumes and discover the Envirogro® Seed treatment process.

Envirogro: The tailored process, that cleans, treats, and improves the bare seed count and purity of tropical and subtropical grasses and legumes. Or try something a little different this autumn and sow proprietary chicory or leafy turnip that can perform in a tropical or subtropical environment. 

Hear what Shane Strazzeri, Queensland farmer has to say about his experience with Mekong Briz antha.

"I have been really impressed with my Envirogro treated Mekong pasture in the Atherton Tablelands. I am amazed at how fast it grows and how well it keeps the woody weeds out. It must be tasty as my cattle (Brangus charolais) love it and don’t look for other grasses to graze.

I think it has the potential to be used to push out sedge and its root system brings up nutrients and has great ground cover. I will definitely be sowing another Mekong pasture after seeing how well it is performing in my top end paddock.” Shane Strazzeri, Barronessa Farming
