At Agronico along with Seed Potatoes we also grow, harvest, grade and store onions during our off-season prior to the seed potato season. The last 2 weeks we have been harvesting and storing onions along with grading which will then go into our coolstore for storage until delivery to our customers.
Grading and storing onions at our Factory and Coolstore in Cockers Creek Spreyton
Onions are a great complementary crop to grow for us because we have been helping farmers and agribusiness across Tasmania grow them for the last 30 years. With our state of the art grading and coolstore we are now able to ensure the quality of our onions as there is minimal handling from ground to coolstore.
We grow both red and brown onions in the Northwest coast of Tasmania in the red ferrosol soils.
This year we will grow, grade and store 800 tonnes.
