Sustainable horticulture is an approach to farming with a range of important goals.
Farm Viability: To support the long-term financial viability of horticulture businesses by maximising crop quality and yield.
Crop Resilience: To provide crop stress strategies that enable your fruit, vegetable and nut crops to be more resilient in the face of extreme events during the growth cycle.
Soil Support: To ensure that crop fertilisers and treatments support healthy soil microbial activity and contribute to long-term soil fertility.
Crop Science: To adopt tailored programs which are based on scientific soil analysis and an evidence-based approach to supporting specific crops at critical times when yield is determined.
Profit Focus: To deliver sustainable farming strategies that are financially practical on a crop by crop, farm by farm basis.
Risk Reduction: To ensure that fertilisers and chemicals used for crop support and crop protection are delivered without creating a risk to human health or the environment.
Ground breaking new technologies

Sabel-X - next generation Trichoderma
Unlock your soil's biological potential and increase photosynthesis by up to 30% with Next Generation Endophytic Trichoderma.
- Lives inside the plant so robust
- Positive ROI is the norm
- Exceptional grower feedback is the hallmark of this product
Why are results exceptional?
To summarise Sabel-X Trichoderma are extremely valuable to the crop because they enhance the interaction between the plant and the soil microbes.
New research has shown the genetic interaction between the plant and the soil microbes is just as important as what's in the soil.
Sabel-X makes better use of what is in your soil with our trials demonstrating they significantly improve the effectiveness of soil health additives because they enhance the interaction between the added microbes and the plant.
How Sabel-X works
Sabel-X Trichoderma colonise inside the plant within 48 hours of seed germination and immediately begin communicating with the plant.
Sabel-X Trichoderma persist for the life of annual crops, playing a key role in signalling within the plant and to beneficial root zone microbes. This improves crop performance by initiating and interpreting signals from the plant to:
- Upregulate genes involved in photosynthesis, increasing energy available to the plant by up to 30%. More energy for extra
plant growth (& yield) in the form of root exudates to nourish soil microbes, releases previously inaccessible nutrients.
- Attract beneficial microbes to the plant roots, coordinating the microbial activity to create a healthy root zone, reducing the effect of soil pathogens.
The signals and results produced by Sabel-X Trichoderma are in addition to those produced by the plant alone.
