Product Information

The work of Dr Bruce Cockroft has established the importance of managing soil structure in irrigated horticulture in Australia. In particular, he has researched and promoted management strategies designed to maximize the rooting volume of irrigated crops with consequent substantial improvements in yield. These strategies have focused on the creation and maintenance of good soil structure and structural stability and of low resistance to penetration, particularly in soils that are of poor structural quality.
