Landmark’s milestone year

LANDMARK Leongatha is celebrating its first birthday under the ownership of Barry Svenson and Sam Vagg this month.

The Horn Street retailer has made waves in South Gippsland agriculture by offering a wide range of premium products to suit every farmer’s needs.

Landmark recently nabbed an exclusive deal with Foundation ML to sell its state of the art fertiliser blend Basis.

“We have exclusive sales of Basis and you cannot buy it anywhere else,” Mr Svenson said.

Basis is a biochemical fertiliser catalyst specially formulated for granular fertiliser blends.

Basis contains concentrated biochemistry that increases nutrient availability in the soil system, and enhances root growth and function.

The new product can benefit a broad range of plant types, soil types and application methods. Growers who incorporate Basis into their programs generally see improved yield responses and reduced fertiliser losses year in and year out.

Basis and Foundation ML products increase nutrients readily available in crops, increase root growth and help to limit air and water movement.

Basis is distributed by Loveland Agri Products which is a subsidiary of Landmark.

Aside from offering customers exclusive products, the Leongatha company offers a wide range of expert advice in agronomy and fertiliser services.

“Our staff are on hand to help out our customers with any concerns,” Mr Svenson said.

The retail store has an extensive range of products for farmers to help maintain healthy produce and livestock in all conditions.

Landmark has committed to providing a comprehensive selection of leading forage and pasture varieties.

Another exclusive product, PastureMax, provides a range of high performance products to assist in the timely management of sowing.

Every year experienced Landmark agronomists work closely with Australian Pasture Specialists to review the performance of each PastureMax blend and make necessary changes to ensure its continued performance.

The end result is a top of the range high performance pasture blend designed to suit South Gippsland farms. Blends can be custom made by Landmark agronomists in store to suit every paddock in the region.

PastureMax includes Fastgrass, an annual grazing and silage option with exceptional autumn establishment and winter yield. Fast grass has a mid to late maturity and is excellent for total season production.

Another variety, Big Bale is a high performance pasture blend well suited to hay and silage production. Its strong winter and spring growth is suitable for all classes of livestock and has a flexible option to include grazing.
