Multikraft Probiotics Australia 858 Gooburrum Rd
Welcome Creek QLD 4670
We have been using the Multikraft Probiotics since 2012 on our farm in Bundaberg, which currently has over 8,000 Macadamia trees, an avocado orchard and is one of the largest lychee producers in Australia.
Our initial interest in Multikraft was to see if we could find a way to assist with the fact that we were applying more and more chemicals on the farm with the same result and were determined to find a way to improve our soil and plant health and be as sustainable as possible. I travelled to Europe to visit Multikraft in 2012 and was very impressed with what the company was doing to assist farmers to maximize their profits across a wide range of applications, whilst also looking after the environment with the future in mind.
When we returned from Europe, the first real positive result from the Multikraft products came from my wife Barbara (who is a doctor who also believes in the benefits of these probiotics), when she applied the products to our vegetable patch at home and insisted I see the results, which were extremely healthy tomatoes and other vegetables and I thought if it works so well here, we need to get this going in our orchard on a larger scale. We also started applying the products in our septic system and no longer had to purchase worms or experience any odour issues, with the system always well balanced by the microbes.
Once we started applying the products across the whole farm, the trees started to look healthier and we quickly noticed an increase in the worm activity, which is one indicator of soil health. The increase in soil and tree health has allowed us to reduce chemical use on the farm considerably. We believe the microbial products have reduced Anthractnose and other diseases on our fruit and we have not needed to inject our trees for Phythothora, with the good bacteria out competing disease causing bacteria with the result a more sustainable and profitable farm.
Overall the probiotics have increased yield and profits and we are very happy, but equally importantly we have maintained a consistently high yield in terms of both volume and quality over many consecutive years (which is unusual in crops like lychees that are known to have inconsistent crops from year to year). Our high quality fruit has now got a reputation in the market for its great taste and also for how well it lasts on the supermarket shelves and we understand the link between this and Multikraft as well as all the other small details that add up to large gains across the farm.
