ECTA have experience growing a wide range of crops. These composition of our annual cropping program is fluid and changes due to market conditions. ECTA utilise international standards
of best practise to ensure full traceability of products and a high standard of food safety.
Utilising GPS guided billet planting to achieve best establishment and the introduction of the first Austloft 8000 cane harvester system, we aim to achieve high yielding irrigated cane plantation, in conjunction with regional milling capacity.
Focusing on hybrid production of grain sorghum to supply the expanding export market demand.
As a suitable rotation to our cane and sorghum crops - we are working towards establishing broad-acre production of Peanut crops.
ECTA is focused on increasing regional production of sugar cane to support the viability of the development of internationally competitive modern milling solutions.
Aiming to realise average yields in excess of 40 MT/acre by achieving optimal planting spacing, utilising fungicides at planting to reliable emergence. Accurate herbicide and fertiliser placements ensure optimal growth when utilised with sufficient and timely applications of irrigation.
RTX satellite provides +/- 4cm accuracy - allowing multi-row machinery to increase efficiency of field operations. Minimising costs to grower whilst maximising outputs.
Scheduled monitoring utilising Trimble Agriculture Software and drone survey - providing up to date field records and analysis.
Utilising harvest trailers to keep trucks out of fields we minimise compaction from the harvesting operation.
Trucks deliver billet cane directly into the mill crusher giving a 2 hour turnaround - significantly increasing Mill sugar recovery and efficiency.
