Leafy Greens - Grower Case Study
Region: Gingin, Western Australia
Kevan Dobra’s family has a 40 year history of market gardening on their 150 acre property. Their business, The Loose Leaf Lettuce Company, harvests four tonnes of salad greens per day including lettuce, rocket, spinach and asian greens.
The spinach crop had a problem with pythium. It was ausing major crop loss to the point it had to be contracted out.
Encouraged by the positive experience of another grower, the business decided to try a new strategy based on building up soil health.
Soil Health Products
“Our new approach is working and we are now harvesting successfully a spinach crop. We had been losing 80% of our crop. Now we’ve got losses down to about 2%. Spinach is one of our major lines and we are harvesting about eight tonnes of it per week. In the summer we can turn a crop around in 23 days, then we start again. That intensity of production means we need to replenish the soil.
The new products have helped us a lot. They’ve proved economical and are working for us.”
