McDonald Agri-Fert was established in 1997 by Ian McDonald. The company is the sole distributor of Bio-Help (www.biohelp.co.nz) who specialise in bio-tech products for cropping, pastoral, horticultural and animal health.
Bio-Help’s owner, Scott Hobson B.Agi.Sci. approached us to sell his farm products, and after impressive trials on 10 farms another 40 tried out the products. Some were old properties which were considered beyond help from liquid fertilisers, however, when they too achieved excellent results we knew we were onto something special.
McDonald Agri-Fert has grown so much since those first trials that we expanded into new premises in January 2012. With a purpose-built store and offices at 12 Laughton Street, Washdyke, Timaru, we now have enough space to do justice to our products and services. We have our own trucking fleet to deliver on farm where possible.
If you are wanting sustainable alternatives to applying large amounts of urea and phosphate fertilisers, we offer, superior, practical, affordable and easy to use solutions that truly expand soil, crop, pasture, silage and animal health performance with positive environmental effects. Bio-Help products provide multiple benefits which compound, and with time product outstanding performance. There is no “quick fix”, but with Bio-Help products you are on the right track.
Our free advisory service and highly skilled staff ensures our clients get up-to-date advice on how best to use our products within their farm management programmes providing maximum returns with minimum effort. They have stood the test of time, and we are extremely happy with their performance. We call them “the way of the future”.
McDonald Agri-Fert are also a bulk molasses provider, having our own tankers to deliver on farm, mainly in Southland, Otago, South & Mid-Canterbury. We can also supply and set up your molasses tank and pump.
Aqua-Fert injector unit systems especially designed for injecting liquid fertiliser into centre pivot irrigators and k-line irrigating systems are another of our specialities.
