YLAD continues to lead the way

For more than 17 years YLAD Living Soils has been assisting innovative farmers and compost operators worldwide understand the complexity of improving soil and plant health while at the same time maintaining and improving productivity, all within a budget.

Rhonda Daly, co-founder and owner of YLAD Living Soils, believes that there is no other group of business owners, more so than farmers, that understands this balancing act. "When farmers are asked, 'what is the one thing they would like to achieve', they all say, 'leave our soil and environment in a better state then it is now for future generations'," she said. "YLAD Living Soils are able to help achieve this dream".

With the threat of climate change, it can be confusing and time consuming to know where to begin. YLAD Living Soils aim to take the pain and time out of making these decisions by offering free personal soil test interpretation, ensuring that farmers understand the soil eco-system, including minerals and microbes that will bring the soil 'back to life' and into balance.

We live in a technological world where advanced measurement and monitoring are now second nature, and it is now possible to take advantage of the technology to measure a huge number of different characteristics including total nutrient pool, enumeration and microbial biomass, soil disease suppression, root rhizosphere microbiology and nutrients held in microbes.

O'Connors range and expertise receive a boost

Nearly six months after Case IH dealer O'Connors stepped into four Central West dealerships, Condobolin, Forbes, Grenfell and West Wyalong, the business has been moving forward in leaps and bounds. There have been a few changes in that time including product range and the introduction of some new faces to the team, including Branch Manager Anthony Davies and Service Manager Trent Glasgow.

According to Central West Manager, Daniel Speed, maintaining and recruiting local talent delivers a winning combination of familiarity and expertise. "Ensuring we have a great team to support our customers' needs is a priority across all ten O'Connors branches, and we consider ourselves lucky to have staff members who know the local area".

O'Connors is now the largest Case IH dealer network in Australia, with ten branches across three states. Not only does their size allow greater resources when it comes to parts and service, they are also well positioned to provide staff training. For more information visit www.oconnorscaseih.com.au.
