What is best crop chemical purchasing strategy?

We often get asked when is the best time to purchase your chemicals to secure the best possible price? What is the best strategy? Everyone has an opinon on this, but we think we are pretty well placed to comment. We are off cropping operations ourselves, 4th generation in fact. We have spent a number of years in traditional rural retail (didn't enjoy it), and then spent a few years in direct distribution before going out on our own to bring you TrueCrop. We also have strong relationships with t...

New safety gear range by TrueCrop

Dear Growers, We have received a lot of enquiry from growers asking if we can supply various General Merchandise products, including safety gear. Whilst this is not an area of focus for us, we view this as an extra service we can provide to our growers who are looking for quality product and the convenience of online shopping coupled with cheap delivery via Aussie Post. So we have decided to launch a small safety gear range which we may build out over time. So check it out on http://www.true...

Our first year in business...

Dear Growers, So that's a wrap on our first financial year in business. For us it was a short year given we only launched mid October 2015. Long story short, we ended up doing more than double the amount of business that we had planned in our first year. We now also have double the amount of grower share option holders we thought we'd have. This is an extremely pleasing result. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the growers who supported us in our first year of business. We look ...

Post emergent season with TrueCrop

Dear Growers, By now seeding or #plant16 is well under way in most areas. Interestingly many growers have started earlier this year than ever before after receiving good early breaks. I won't keep you long as you're no doubt all under the pump getting the crop in, but just tought I'd make quick mention of early post emergent chemicals you might want to start thinking about such as Clethodim (e.g. Select) and MCPA LVE (e.g. Agritone). It may be a good idea to get in early on these as we're notic...

Seeding & post emergent season

Dear Growers, By now you may be wondering how we're going in our first 6 months of business? Well I am pleased to report it is going well above expectations. We have already achieved our full year budgeted sales target and we still have the seeding, post emergent and fungicide season ahead of us. That aside, what is most pleasing is the level of new customer acquisition and repeat purchase we are experiencing. We are working with some great growers, with most already qualifying for free company...

Trifluralin fun

Hello Growers, Well late October means only one thing, it's time for distributors to lock down trifluralin supply for next years winter cropping season. There's always a decent amount of fun and games invloved in negotiating pricing and volumes with the manufacturers. Already we are are seeing some pretty wild variations in the pricing being offered. One can never really know why this is, but hazard a guess it is the difference between the tech price on existing product versus replacement (o...

TrueCrop... open for business

Hello Growers. So we're absolutely delighted to be able to announce our official launch today. This is a very big day as it's a culmination of several years of work, thinking, strategising, tweaking to get to a position where we're happy to pull the trigger on a direct agri chemical distribution model to broad acre croppers which we're calling TrueCrop. So why are we doing this? Well we have a few motivations for wanting to do so; We're off the land and farming is in the blood. Unfortuna...
