Bonaccord Ingram Co

Bonaccord Ingram is a large scale primary production company, growing vegetables, grain and livestock. This company has all the farm infrastructure to support the growth of over 26,000 tonnes of produce. Water is the company's most precious resource. High efficiency lateral irrigators have replaced the original flood irrigation method. In 2005 a 265 mega litre off-river storage dam was built to secure water through the dryer months. This was soon followed by a second dam situated on 5 hectares, holding 700 mega litres. This dam, which was opened in 2009, took five years to research and construct, but the water security has enabled the Ingrams to ensure quality produce all year round.

Over 18 million seeds are grown in the Bonaccord Nursery which supplies most of the seedlings for the farm. Extra seedlings are bought in to fill orders in peak production.

Crop rotation is vital in keeping the soil healthy and sustainable. Vegetable crops such as broccoli, beans, sweetcorn, carrots, cabbage and cauliflower are rotated with barley, lucerne, peas, faba beans, ryegrass, triticale and mustard. The cover crops are used to return nutrients to the soil or behave as a natural fumigant. They decrease the need for chemical usage and increase organic fibre and carbon in the soil. Other crops are grown in smaller scale such as capsicum, chilli, onions, tomatoes and pumpkin.
