About Us.

At AgriRem Earth Care, we believe in making a positive difference and advocate the use of safe and organic products. Current sports turf management practices, using so many chemicals, is damaging our environment and leeching a chemical cocktail into our local waterways.

Residual chemicals on the turf are also leeching into our bodies and having an adverse effect on our personal health. Our youth are especially at risk. Given a choice, would we really want them playing in a toxic environment, being exposed every time they go out and play sport? This is without doubt, the main reason we decided to take on the challenge of changing the status quo. These practices are putting all players, especially our children, at risk; particularly when they are playing a contact sport. The science is very clear about chemical toxicity overload, and many of us have no idea that our kids are being poisoned by the grass they are playing on. At AgriRem Earth Care, having a positive impact on sporting fields is definitely worth the challenge.

We knew we had a challenge ahead of us, change is a hard and nobody likes it. It is difficult when regimes that have been practiced for decades need to change, we often don’t know what to do. In the beginning the results from chemical treatments were spectacular but, in the long-run, the impact of these chemicals is now clear. But what else could we do? Current practices were adopted by one and all and became known as ‘the only way’ to maintain a field; and let’s face it, chemical companies are happy with their sales levels. It’s now time for a new approach.

The way we've challenged the status quo of traditional, chemically laden sports turf management, was by turning it on its head and focusing on the soil. This is the fundamental difference. We developed a methodology using our own environmentally friendly, organically certified, products that are unlike any other on the market today. AgriRem Earth Care is the key to turning on The Natural Nutrient Cycle™. Sports turf does not require the use of pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, pre-emergent’s, or fertilizers. As complicated as it’s made out to be, with healthy soil comes health turf. Understanding and using AgriRem Earth Care’s methodology empowers you to make healthier choices for turf management.

We've been very fortunate to partner with the Nambour Toads Rugby Union Club. Over the past couple of years we've taken the infamous Toads field (infamous for poor playing conditions) to now arguably being the best all weather sports field on the Sunshine Coast with year round usability.
The Toads now have a chemical free, fully long-term sustainable, cost effective turf management process.


By acknowledging the need for an innovative approach to turf management, the Toads adopted AgriRem Earth Care's methodology and now their main oval has achieved Organic Certification – proven to the parts per million – and, to add to this, they were the winners at the 2015 Queensland Premiers Sustainability Awards. They are now the first sporting field in Australia, if not the world,
to have organic certification. Another great example of where passion meets purpose.

We would like to have the opportunity to discuss our solution with you. Our solution is the way:

1. for you to reduce costs and any risk of exposure to harmful chemicals,
2. which doesn’t require the closure of ovals to players or the casual user,
3. which is fully sustainable and works within the natural systems,
4. that now has Zero harm to the local environment,
5. to eliminate chemical run off into your local waterways, and away
6. the local bird life will get to enjoy the abundance of earth worms in your healthy soil.

This is now not just a theory – but a proven case of regular mowing and AgriRem A70.


We are proud of this sustainable and healthier alternative to current practices.
