Who is Gerhard Grasser?
Gerhard Grasser is the managing director of Agricultural solutions Australia.The philosophy and motivation of AgriSolutions largely stems from the passion and beliefs of the Managing Director, Gerhard Grasser. His passion for natural living and sustainable agricultural practices is unsurprisingly extended to those around him and hence the business was formed and grown substantially. His passion to teach others about natural alternatives for the environment and particularly farming never waned and this drive has lead him to expand his own knowledge and skills to meet the increasing demands of this “mentoring” role.
AgriSolutions is becoming recognised as a reputable advisory service for farm management practices both within Gippsland and steadily expanding throughout other regions of Australia. Its growth has been determined over the long term by the company’s willingness to educate its customers and develop a sense of trust and integrity rather than just as an avenue to sell product.
Driven by the principles and philosophies of natural fertility and health management -on a personal, farm, catchment and global basis – AgriSolutions works in close liaison with its customers to support a successful holistic approach to any growing situation. It is these values that underpin the connection that the farmer client has with his immediate environment and the responsibility he has nurturing the natural resource base on behalf of future generations.
Today the management of AgriSolutions can claim some 15 years of continuous development, sales and service to all sectors of agriculture, turf and home growers involving leading independent laboratories to analyse soils, plants and water.
