Water-wise Brad joins
Brad Miller has been appointed sales specialist for pumping and irrigation with NRI rural independent, Cowaramup Agencies
With 20 years of experience in water reticulation, Brad specialises in iron filtration pumping systems and irrigation which is a growing segment for Cowaramup Agencies, your local NRI independent.
“Many vineyards need to upgrade their systems and with better technology now available that can minimise wastage,” said Brad.
Brad’s experience also covers both Commercial and Househould pumps, filtration and irrigation systems.
“Solar panel systems are now very powerful so can drive bigger pumps making them more cost-effective than ever; there are whole vineyards now operating on a solar system.”
Vignerons aside, dairy and beef producers also need filtration systems to improve the quality of drinking water from dams, bores and soaks for livestock which in turn helps improve milk yields and growth rates, according to Brad.
“The recent run of wet winters and dry summers is also helping drive demand for better water reticulation systems generally,” he said.
Brad is professionally trained in the design, construction and electrical maintenance of iron filtration, water treatment systems and reverse osmosis plants. He will join Tim Hallyburton and Neil Earl in the sales and advisory team at Cowaramup Agencies.

We’re seeking expressions of interest from Growers who may be like to take the opportunity to catch up with Dean Metcalf, a champion of Trichoderma research and development in relation to Botrytis intervention; with a particular interest in grapes.
Dr Dean Metcalf is a plant pathologist based in Tasmania who has researched the use of beneficial micro-organisms for control of crop diseases for over 20 yrs. He began the work by studying a Trichoderma based biological control agent for onion white rot. In 2002 he began to work on Botrytis cinerea in grapes and the research led to commercialisation of two biological control agents for this disease. He also has developed a biological control agent for Phytophthora root rot and in 2011 turned his attention to brown rot in stonefruit. He lead the Tasmanian State diagnostic laboratory for 12 yrs and so has experience in a very wide variety of crop disease scenarios. He is an Internationally recognised authority in the use of beneficial microbes to control crop disease.
Dean from BioControl will be in Margaret River on the morning of the 15th of September, available for discussion or presentation on the use and benefits of;
