is established as a respected agricultural management business
both locally and throughout NSW and in Victoria.
During his years of farm management
is was obvious to Bruce that there was an opportunity for an independent
service provider of agricultural management focussing on the changing
needs of the industry.
The farming community and associated
industries needed access to an independent adviser skilled particularly
in irrigation management and with the practical experience required
by the diversity of agriculture. These strengths proved to be
an asset and what was required by the existing clientele.
The importance of water management
was foreseen and it was decided to locate the business at Darlington
Point between the Murrumbidgee and Coleambally Irrigation Areas.
Much was and is expected of the farming
business person. Providing a base of knowledge, experience and
service was seen as enabling the farmer to devote valuable time
to other business management activities.
And so DALCROM
was established in 1995. DALCROM
prides itself in being able to provide integrated agronomic advice
including irrigation management, integrated pest management, nutrition,
soil management, precision agriculture/viticulture, property management
and maintenance and/or record keeping of quality management systems
including ISO 2000 and HACCP.
To implement the management and analysis
of data the partners of the business have invested in sub meter
GPS equipment and GIS software.
The partners of the business see
the opportunity for further expansion of the business particularly
in the area of horticulture/viticulture and to accommodate this
staff has increased in this area.
