The concept for Renew was conceived on Saturday, February 17th 2007 when a research student, Alice Palmer presented her thesis "Aerated compost extract: standardising a new approach for integrated management of powdery mildew" to a very interested group of winemakers and vignerons attending the annual Tasmanian Pinot Noir Forum.

Gerald Ellis, an agriculturalist for 30 years was well aware that increasing use of traditional fertilizers was unsustainable for a number of reasons including soil degradation, high energy production requirements, sustainability, water requirements and depletion of soil carbon and microbial activity.

Further discussions ensued and Tony Scherer whose experience in the Luebke system of composting could not be matched by any other person in Australia joined the team. This was quickly followed by Dean Metcalf, Alice?s PhD supervisor. Dean was already involved in commercially producing Trichoderma as a commercial "fungicide" to prevent white rot in onions through his company Biobot Pty Ltd.

Renew was established in 2007 for the purpose of
"providing agricultural solutions" an alternative to non-sustainable/synthetic/high carbon emissions, e.g., chemicals and fertilizers.

Renew biological fertilizers are produced using a closed-loop system where organic waste from local agricultural based industries is converted into value added biological fertilizers and pesticides which are returned to local agricultural industries and other end users.

Renew biological fertilizers provide:
- organic matter;
- carbon;
- macro and micro-nutrients;
- cation exchange capacity;
- "live", beneficial microorganisms;
- soil structure;
- soil moisture holding capacity; and
- soil water infiltration.


Renew biological fertilizer provides all the benefits of synthetic fertilizers, whilst delivering significant long-term benefits including increased:

- soil organic matter;
- soil biological activity; and
- long term nutrient supply.
Which leads to better soil structure and more healthy, resilient, productive soils and plants.

Results are backed by 8 years of research and development and supported by intensive ongoing glasshouse and field trials. Renew is produced using the Luebke system of composting and is tested daily to ensure quality.

Renew is a non-synthetic fertilizer, usable in a variety of applications. Renew fertilizers will significantly improve the sustainability of your land management and your profit margin. Renew will improve your garden and add value to your land.
