Playing our part to help Aussie farmers

Playing our part to help Aussie farmers

The state of New South Wales is 100% in drought as is a lot of rural Australia. Farmers are struggling with failing crops, low water supply and diminishing livestock feed. From ground level, the earth looks a brown dust bowl.

After reading and seeing the plight of Australian farmers who are destroying their cattle and some being forced off their land, Centor Oceania has made a donation which will help to contribute to this most worthy cause in support of Australia’s rural communities and Aussie farmers.

As part of an ongoing commitment, Centor Oceania will also contribute a percentage of all domestic sales to this fantastic “Buy a Bale” campaign.

Centor certainly made a splash

Centor certainly made a splash

This year ISF was held in at the Brisbane Convention Centre, Brisbane, Australia. The Centor Group displayed a very colourful booths this year. In keeping with the “splash” theme we included acrylic coloured cut out splashes which were placed around the booth and created great interest from visitors. Also on display was our Lab FlowTek and Mobile Chlorophyll Analyser.

There was a great deal of interest shown in our polymer products that really tackle the important issue of dust from treated seeds. The Centor Group can offer some of the best products in the market for reducing dust. Also launched at ISF was FORTIFI – which is used to securely bind active components to canola and sunflower seed, or can be used as a pellet sealer in which Fortifi forms a sealing shell to enclose the pellet as well as a range of organic and biobased products.

We would like to thank the hundreds of visitors to our booth, if you didn’t make it to see us here, feel free to contact us, or perhaps we will see you at the next ISF or next APSA congress?
