A lime legacy transfers to Australian Agricultural Minerals
Miriwinni Lime and Gypsum (MLG) was founded by the Wilkins family during the 1970s after they identified a growing need to optimise the condition of their cane farm soils to improve crop yields. This challenge saw them secure their first limestone deposit at Mount Garnet in Far North Queensland.
Following this, the company expanded to service, first to its neighbours and then established a more sophisticated supply, distribution, and spreading network in North Queensland. During this time other mineral deposits like dolomite, calcium silicate and gypsum were secured to supply the growing demand for sweeter soil.
In 2021 Australian Agricultural Minerals (AAM) purchased MLG and were provided the opportunity to continue the legacy of the Wilkins family. In 2023, MLG, under the guidance of AAM, remain committed to proudly source, supply and spread quality minerals that improve soil and crop performance across a wide variety of farming operations. With the ownership change MLG remains 100% Australian owned and operated. In fact, many of the same staff, including a few of the Wilkins family will be those you hear from when contacting MLG for your next enquiry or order.
Despite soaring grower input costs, MLG has been able to keep cost increases on all their products to a minimum thanks to local sourcing in North Queensland. Economically, farmers who understand the fundamentals of nutrient availability with improved soil pH and nutrient balance often tell the team at MLG, it costs them more not to use the MLG products in order to maintain good crop yield.
