A CHANCE ENCOUNTER LED TO A NEW CAREER
Oasis-Agri Australia was conceived after a chance encounter with Francis Yeatman, a visionary in the field of organic soil science and the correlation between soil health, improved yields, improved water retention and increased carbon sequestration.
To add to this situation by 2050 farmers will need to grow 70% more food to meet the needs of the 30% growth in population. Current farming practices cannot support this growth. The world is experiencing a global shortage of fertilizers. CSIRO estimates that there is up to $10 billion worth of phosphorus locked up in Australia through fertilizer application. It is imperative that approaches that do not harm the environment are adapted to enable plants to access this source of food.

Oasis-Agri is focused on improving farming practices to restore soil health, increase crop yield, reduce carbon and provide a greater ROI to farmers and land owners.
We will accomplish this vision by:
- Providing education on how to improve soil health – physical, biological and chemical
- Use drones for hi-def and NDVI imagery, aerial seeding, micro-nutrient application and crop monitoring
- Focusing on processes, procedures to assist land owners to maximise carbon sequestration through improved farming practices
- Restoring flogged land and improving biodiversity outcomes
