The AG Schilling & Co and AG Culture journey began in 2007 with importing our first product, Atom Jet seeding openers. The objective of the business has always been to improve the farming operation by accessing products which are currently not available to Australian farmers. In the case of Atom Jet, the objective was to find a No-Till seeding point which would assist in moisture conservation while withstanding the punishing conditions of the limestone-filled Yorke Peninsula soils. As with all products sold by AG Culture, Atom Jet openers were initially tested on the AG Schilling & Co farm in 2006. This followed with negotiations to be Australia’s sole importer and were confirmed in 2007.
While Australia is quite large in terms of land area, our broad acre farming industry is quite small compared to other nations such as the United States of America and Canada. AG Culture looks to these nations when seeking out new products because often their farming systems are similar to ours. However, they have greater access to products and technologies due to large manufacturing industries.
Since the initial on farm success of Atom Jet in 2006, several other products have been sort out and tested by the AG Schilling & Co team. Many of the products tested, have failed to meet expectations or the needs of Australian farming businesses. However, a few select products which have passed the AG Schilling & Co test now represent our product range.
