Replenishing the Nutrients


Essential nutrients are replenished in the soil by our native bush where leaf litter falls and feeds the soil below, this impacts the wider area beyond our native scrub tracts. Additionally aerial dusting is our most efficient way of fertilising the larger farm area.

Maraekowhai uses local transport company Ongarue Transport to move our fertiliser to the local airstrip before application, we support the maintenance of this airstrip which is central to flourishing farms as it’s the main method of fertilisation for this remote and rugged region.
