Bringing Intelligent Agricultural Solutions to Australian Farmers.

February - March 2024

WEED-IT Wimmera bound  

This week our WEED-IT specialists Brendan Williams and Hamish McIntosh are at the Traction Ag drive day in Horsham. Proud to be showcasing the all new Fendt Rogator 900 sporting WEED-IT customised and installed by our own Rometron Australia team. Exciting times seeing the Rogator doing its stuff on the Wimmera plains. Along with Vince Carbone and the Traction Ag team the crew love catching up with Wimmera farmers - it doesn't get much better !

And there's more. Next week we'll be at the Wimmera Machinery Field Days - site A 73 - 76 again with our valued partners from Traction Ag with the Fendt Rogator on site. So whether its this week or next or both we'd love to catch up and hear how we can assist with your spraying needs.

Harvest Wrap Up Riverine Plains Katamatite 

And at the other end of the state our very own Neill Morey and Thijs Van Harten were on board with Riverine Plain's Rhiannan McPhee and local farmer Craig Thomas getting into the paddock ahead of the heat to give local farmers a hands on look at WEED-IT and all its applications.

Thanks to Riverine Plains, Youanmite farmer Craig Thomas and the local farmers for a great morning.

Stay tuned for all our photos from this week - a picture tells a thousand words and saves a lot of chemical ! 

 

 

Hardi retrofit December 2023 

Eyre Peninsula SA 

If you're a South Australian farmer we'd love to share with you our latest passion which saw us spend this week on the Eyre Peninsula.  Delivering our first Hardi Saritor 7000 WEED-IT retrofit to an EP farmer was a real highlight. All 42.5 meters ready to do its thing ! 

Helping farmers get the best out of WEED-IT technology and tailoring it to their specific needs Australia wide is what gives our Engineering team (and our entire crew) a real buzz, this month we've loved having that feeling here in South Australia.

Hearing from locals at Paskeville back in September and last year at Cleve we've taken on board the needs of S.A. farmers and answered their call for customised solutions for their spot spraying needs and their preference for PWM blanket spraying - making WEED-IT a smart choice all year round. 

As discerning operators we appreciate that you want local knowledge to help bring your decision making together when upgrading your investments. We've got Spud Taylor on the ground on the West Coast and Eyre Peninsula and Chris Pfitzner on the York Peninsula and Mid North.

Spud and "Pfitzy" know the SA landscape like the back of their hand and they get what SA farmers want - working side by side our Engineering team lead by Hamish McIntosh and Ryan Cale we are proud of the end result we can achieve which is farmer focussed to meet your goals.

We love hearing from farmers and are just a phone call away.

ENGINEERING EXPERTISE AND RELATIONSHIPS ARE KEY

At Rometron Australia we greatly value the relationship we have with the Engineering team at Rometron in the Netherlands. The distance between us is no barrier to our great working relationship with a shared passion for helping farmers win the war on weeds.  Weekly remote engineering catch ups keep everyone on the same page addressing the needs of Australian farmers.

We wrapped up 2022 in style having Roel de Jonge, founder and managing director of Rometron NL in Australia on farm and "on tour" with our Managing Director Brendan Williams and valued partners in Goondiwindi, Queensland. A visit from AgriTech America's managing director Adam Hutton completed a great reunion all round! Followed by R&D Engineers Youri Schoutsen and Bart Lammers earlier this year. Being Youri's second trip to see us in the last 12 months it was great to get out and about with him again travelling to both Goondiwindi in Queensland and Esperance in Western Australia.
