Darryl O’Leary is an innovative watermelon farmer from Chinchilla, one of the first successful growers of seedless watermelons in the country. He uses a Katek Custom Blend fertilizer, tailoreed to suit his soil and the requirements of his watermelon crops.Seedless-Watermelon
Darryl recently hosted the Chinchilla Melon Festival Field Day at his farm ‘Paramagh’, which attraced national and international growers and exhibitors.
“I have been using Katek products since they first started 7 or 8 years ago” Darryl explains.
It flows easy and I can get a Custom Blend made up with both synthetic fertilizers and the chicken manure pellets, which suits the soil here.
We get great results out of it and we will keep using it“.
