  • With soaring global fertiliser costs hitting the hip pocket of Australian farmers, a move from a group of egg producers has led to a $38-million investment to transform spent chickens manure and other waste into a new type of fertiliser.
  • A new plant will be built near Lethbridge, in south-west Victoria, where the company is hoping to produce 75,000 tonnes of fertiliser a year, using waste materials with carbon and fertiliser products.
