A-Gas Rural

A-Gas Rural specialises in the supply of fumigation chemicals, application equipment and services to the agricultural sector from our manufacturing, blending and import storage facility located in Adelaide suburb of Wingfield.

Our primary focus in the market place is supplying sustainable alternatives to the Ozone depleting Methyl Bromide. We are also involved in supplying fumigation equipment and monitoring devices as well as designing and implementing fumigation systems.

A-Gas Rural is committed to providing quality products and services to all our clients with an ongoing focus on safety through our product stewardship program. Stewardship of our products is a role we take very seriously.

A-Gas Rural is the only Australian distributor of ProFume, a Douglas product which has been used to replace Methyl Bromide across a wide range of post-harvest and space fumigation activities. ProFume has been successful in controlling Phosphine resistant insect pests in the grain growing areas of Australia.

ProFume is an excellent rotation chemical for the grain industry. Interchanged with Phosphine, it delivers a cost effective resistance management strategy that increases the useful life of Phosphine in grain protection. The use of ProFume in this way is a credible industry wide strategy which provides the grain industry with options not previously available.

A-Gas Rural also imports Methyl Bromide under our own label for clients with QPS and Phytosanitary requirements.

 

"HortEx and A-Gas Rural partnered in greenhouse trials on the Northern Adelaide Plains of South Australia for soil grown vegetable crops to develop world class fumigation management tools. These new tools now mean that Growers have access to an elite commercial service that delivers prescriptive fumigation allowing fumigant gases to specifically target and control soil nematodes and diseases. Crop yields have increased up to 3 times with Grower profitability improving dramatically throughout the crop’s life cycle. The big winners from these new tools are the Grower’s bottom line and the environment." Bryan Robertson, Executive Officer, HortEx Alliance Inc.
