In 2002 Colin Mitchell toured the Canterbury Plain in New Zealand with other farmers, on an agronomy tour to study nitrogen and canopy management of cereal crops. Many of the farms visited in NZ had Bogballe spreaders and he asked the question why. The farmers reported that the Bogballes proved very efficient in windy conditions because of their 4 double overlap pattern, and were superior spreaders in terms of accuracy and quality. After learning new practices of delayed nitrogen application in crops to grow less biomass and more grain, Colin saw the need to apply these principles in SA and sought the Australian distributor of the Bogballe spreaders, purchasing one for use on his own property in the Mid North of SA.
Whilst purchasing his own M3W Bogballe spreader from the importer in Bacchus Marsh, both parties recognised the opportunity for a distributorship in SA, and so Techgrow Agriculture was born.We have now sold Bogballe spreaders to farmers Australia wide and continue to provide them with personal support and service.
In 2007 Techgrow Agriculture moved from a farm-based business to a new property on the edge of Clare. With great staff and facilities, we are moving forward, offering up to date solutions for farmers with improving technology, including variable rate and N Sensor hook up tuition.
In 2012 Techgrow took on the National importership for Bogballe. This has been a great move for the Techgrow group and we feel very honoured to be representing such a premium brand.
Our practical experience with Bogballe spreaders and our hands on, personal support are the reasons that we can help farmers meet their spreading requirements. The company has steadily grown adding other premium agricultural equipment to the range including Bredal Trailed Spreaders, Finch Engineering Field Bins, HE-VA Deep Rippers and Fransgard Grader Blades, making us your preferred spreading and grain logistics specialist.
