Case Study - The Plantsmith: boosting nursery productivity the natural way

Working with nature to dramatically reduce chemical application has paid off for Simon Smith, who hasn’t used a non-organic pesticide spray for more than eight years at his production nursery, 25km from Darwin in Australia’s Top End.
‘The Plantsmith’ is set on an 8,000 square metre site with the majority of plants grown under protective cropping to exclude pests and help shield them from the extreme heat and intense rainfall for which the region’s tropical climate is infamous.
