DELTA secret to successPosted on February 15, 2011
Long-time Bundaberg fruit and vegetable grower Godfrey Priebe has a few secrets to success. Many of these he would prefer to keep to himself, but one secret he will reluctantly share is his use of the DELTA water treatment technology.
Reliant on water from the Branyan Creek for growing tomatoes, capsicums, zucchini and seeded watermelons for markets in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, tip burn and wilting were common problems. It was about 10 years ago, while experiencing a 100% failure rate with his capsicums, that Mr Priebe started looking for a solution.
When DELTAwater solutions tested his water through the Australian company’s Water Advisory Service, results showed it was unsuitable even for livestock.
“When Alex Panov from DELTA called me after six months to see if the unit was working, I was more than happy to pay the money for the results I was getting,” Mr Priebe said. “In my circumstances the DELTA works very well. I’m still using the same unit and for the past eight to 10 years we have had consistently good results.”
Mr Priebe said the DELTA water treatment technology worked. “It certainly has made a difference to our crops,” he said.
