At Redox, we empower our Agronomists to drive success on the farm. Our experienced team of specialists are eager to find solutions that enable our partners in agriculture to optimise their yield and reduce costs while maintaining a high production level.

“I take great pride in the positive outcomes we produce on farms,” said veteran Redox Agronomist Ian Gardner. 

“…our work and dedication on a Raspberry crop recently resulted in 25 tonnes per hectare within 18 months – exceeding what standard practices could have achieved alone! The farmer was thrilled with this result.”

Agronomist career

“Watching over the Dolomia Plus Raspberry crop during its final harvest was a sight to behold. After six years in Adelaide Hills, South Australia, these resilient plants had defied an unseasonably cold winter and I walked through them recently when temperatures still hovered around 9 degrees Celsius – yet they endured proudly until their end of season finale.” Ian Gardner, Redox Agronomist.

 Welcome aboard Diego 

Diego Farias is our newest Agronomist; he hails from Brazil, bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to Redox and boasts an impressive background and expertise. With his Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture as well as honing his skills specializing in plant nutrition, he has gained invaluable experience from internships at soil and plant analysis laboratories to working with broad acre crops such soybean seed, cotton & corn for years.

In addition to this impressive work history Down Under he has been passionate about protected cropping (Tomato Capsicum Eggplant Cucumber etc.), providing agronomic aid for vegetable growers including managing soil/plant nutrition issues alongside pest & disease control plus hydroponic systems.

“Going on-site and meeting with our customers to understand what they need is crucial, but it’s also a wonderful way to connect with them and get to know them personally. Growing up on a farm, my love for agriculture goes back to being a young boy. I’m now driven by an unrelenting dedication and passion to share that knowledge with the growers who depend on me; together, we have forged strong relationships built of mutual understanding and respect,” says Diego Farias, our newly appointed Agronomist working out of our Adelaide office. 

As innovators of new farm technologies and educators for existing practices, agronomists ensure that crops can be grown sustainably yet profitably — a crucial balance when it comes to protecting our planet’s future.

Magnesium sulphate, often known as Epsom salt, is a versatile chemical utilised in various markets. With its long history, its use cases are as extensive as they are varied. 

In 1618, a villager named Henry Wicker at Epsom in England tried to provide his cattle water from a well. They refused to drink it because of the bitter flavour of the water. However, the farmer discovered that the water healed wounds and rashes. The fame of Epsom salts grew over time. 

Eventually, it was recognised to be magnesium sulphate, MgSO4.

How is magnesium sulphate used?

Primarily used as a foliar and irrigated fertiliser in the agriculture sector where it improves soil fertility, creating an environment conducive to growth.

Another industry it is commonly used in is the animal nutrition industry, where it is used in animal feed (feed grade) to aid the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids (fats) and proteins and for nerve activity and muscle contraction.

More recently, magnesium sulphate has experienced increased use in the pharmaceutical and health sectors with applications such as bath salts and isolation tanks.

It is even used as an active ingredient in pain-relieving lotions, creams and oils within the personal care industry.

Yet, there are instances of it being used in sectors as diverse as:
