In July 2018, Anco commenced work on their newly acquired farm in Swan Hill. The first planting of DNA Certified Sir Walter took place in September 2018. Although the first crop could have been harvested earlier the Sod harvester went to work in October 2019 and a vibrant green harvest of Australia’s largest selling grass made its way to Melbourne overnight.
The new farm has been planted to DNA Certified Sir Walter, a new variety of Kikuyu and Tif Tuf Bermuda.
Our farm Manager Giles Johns reports that “this winter the farm has so far had 22 frosts, yet the Buffalo turf still has a green tinge to it under the tips”.
Ryan Cotter the General Manager said “The environment of Swan Hill is ideal for growing turf and will provide us with a regular supply of quality turf in the marginal turf production months of winter and early spring when the warm season varieties are slow to produce turf in Melbourne”.
