Biodunder is the end product of molasses fermentation found in sugar cane milling and is a valued liquid fertiliser. By using liquid fertilisers such as Biodunder, Australian farmers are reducing our dependance on imported potash. Biodunder is comprised of vegetable matter (yeast biomass) containing potassium, sodium, nitrogen, calcium, magnesium, phophorus and sulphur.
How is it Transported?
Griggs Haulage operates a large fleet of B-Double tankers to transport the liquid fertiliser from the Mackay Region up to Burdekin Cane Farms. Each B-Double truckload carries about 57,000 litres of liquid fertiliser.
How is it Applied?
Griggs operate purpose built applicator machines which stream the Biodunder directly over the stool minimising runoff and maintaining compliance with Reef Rescue Regulations
Griggs applicator machinery fleet includes both tractor+trailer combinations and rigid trucks. All vehicles have wide low pressure tyres that reduce ground pressure minimising impact on the paddocks where they are operated.
