Situated approx 100 km’s north of Perth at Woodridge, Center West Export covers an area of 1000 acres of fixed and pivot irrigation for carrot production.
The founder of the company and now Managing Director, Frank Tedesco, has been in the vegetable industry all his life and has gained a reputation as a quality grower and combined with his passion for perfection, has made Center West Exports, the export side of the company, into a major exporting force. The company has, since it’s inception, been synonymous with a quality product. Growing bigger is not the company’s focus; instead, providing a cost competitive, quality product for export to a range of world markets is the company driver. At present the company exports to Asia, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, the Middle East and the Maldives as well as supplying local and Eastern State markets.
The Soil Wealth & Integrated Crop Protection team are working with the Tedesco's to demonstrate the benefit of compost and other soil amendments in improving soil health and enhancing crop protection from diseases. Our partners at this site are C-Wise who are developing a custom compost product to suit the production system.
We have a 10ha area on the main farm with 1/2ha lots to trial the custom product at variable rates. Read below to see how you can follow our progress.
