Season failures, spiralling costs, collapsing profits and ruinous debt are fast becoming the norm for Australian agriculture. But this need not be. Pristine Forage Technologies has real answers; how to build returns; slash N fertiliser costs; survive drought; make every raindrop count; create flexibility; restore sustainability; and so on. Our pastures and forages unlock enormous untapped production and earnings potential on your farm. With that Pristine advantage, you can multiply profits across your whole business.
We say it works, because we see it working. But you be the judge. Your future is in your hands, and we only want to help keep it that way.
When reading and thinking about this site, bear in mind that we are not sales people, or armchair scientists, or pontificating, big city bureaucrats. We are real professionals who have been studying and working with pasture and forage production on scientific, technical and practical farm levels for more than 30 years. What we say is doable is based on what we have already seen and done, or what we know has been achieved from the feedback and experience of others using our varieties and ideas. If you are personally up for it, you can reach that higher level too, but with our varieties and technologies, it won’t take you 30 years!
New from Pristine
A special note on managing with climate change and drought; the real answers.
Offset the high risk and high costs of grain crops with a low cost, low risk, reliable income every year from Pristine’s easily managed, high performance forage crops and pastures.
While grain crops have regularly failed over recent years leaving many farmers with crippling debts, forage crops and pastures have come through despite the weather. Pristine forages and pastures take this to a completely new level of reliability, profitability, utility and ease of implementation, so that you can both make a bigger income in bad years, and set your land up to really take advantage of the better years.

Slashing your fertiliser costs
Turn your largest crop cost into pure profit while doing everything right for your land, your business and your future.
At the risk of stating the obvious, N fertiliser prices are going through the roof. But what is less well known is that despite all the money being spent, nearly every grain grower is still exporting a lot of N out of his soil. To satisfactorily replace all the N removed in every single tonne of grain via fertiliser will cost about $70; and that cost will only continue to rise in the future. Fortunately there is an excellent and very profitable alternative. Pasture and forage legumes fix large amounts of N, for free, so that you can use this to boost your real profit from growing cereals by at least $70 per tonne; while also doing a lot more than a little bit to save the environment.

Forage cropping; doing it without animals
If you are a 100% cropper looking for better alternatives for your rotation, growing a Pristine legume forage crop is an excellent and very reliable option in our uncertain climate. That is because Pristine varieties are benchmark high forage yielders, what you harvest starts growing from day one, you can produce up to three times the amount of harvestable protein per unit area compared to a cereal, and prices for quality forage can make this a most lucrative and profitable crop, even in a dry year.
Most of the generic information on this web site is applicable to growing straight forage crops as well as pastures. Some specific additional comments can be found under point 2 of the Drought page.
