Total Grower Services are the next generation of agronomists in Australia, thinking outside the box when it comes to getting the most from your farm. We don’t use a one-size-fits-all approach. Our recommendations are based on your soil, your crop, your location, and detailed scientific leaf and soil testing. We have a proven track record of reducing input costs on farms whilst increasing yield.
Our agronomists use market leading technology to help them analyse your farm. Total Grower Services uses a unique leaf and soil testing system that is far more detailed than any of our competitors. Coupled with an extensive, in-house developed, historical database, reporting and analysis system this allows us to make detailed recommendations and see how your farm compares to your neighbours or the regional average.
We think you’ll be impressed with our unique approach and proven results so contact us to get to work on your farm.

Our Five Steps of Agronomy
An agronomist will visit your farm and find out what it is you currently do. We’ll want to know about your crops, your stock, your fertiliser regime, your current farming issues, and anything else we can think of that’ll help us get to the root of your problems.
We base all of our recommendations on scientific fact. So we’ll take a soil test to determine its health and the trace elements held in it. If appropriate we take a leaf test to determine which nutrients are making it into your crop.
After our lab has analysed your soil we receive the results and interpret them. We then base our recommendations not just on the test results but also on your crop - not all crops require the same nutrients. You may find our recommendations a little different from your conventional agronomists. For example, we may reduce your fertiliser program but add soil inoculants so that the plants uptake the nutrients more efficiently. Or we may mix you up a custom foliar blend to spray onto the crops.
Our agronomists tell you the best ways to apply our recommended products within your farming system.
One of the most important but overlooked parts of agronomy. We will revisit your farm to see how things are going. We will sit down and talk to you about your experiences and may take more soil or leaf tests to see how the health of your soil and crops is improving.
