Three years on shows the benefit of careful planning and flexibility

 Autumn 2021 | Australian Macadamia Society - News Bulletin

Robbie Commens is no stranger to the macadamia industry. He worked with the AMS for more than seven years as its Productivity Development Manager before taking on a new challenge in 2017, establishing a 200 ha orchard on the northern NSW floodplain (Salt Spray Farms) at East Wardell, just south of Ballina. We caught up with Robbie in December 2020 to see how things are progressing after two years of getting his hands dirty on the farm.

Data and Innovation

We improve efficiency by data-driven innovation


2te investigates past the soil surface, to identify opportunities & potential limiting factors as evident in the soil pit photos (taken from the same 15ha block, with significant differences in the sub-soil).

2te utilises drone technology to gain further insight & a range of unique perspectives of their orchards.

2te invests in Community and Environment



We invested in planting native vegetation areas along waterways and work together with research agencies to continue to increase native vegetation corridors. 2te has applied for government grants to undertake these initiatives.


2te has invested in holding community open days for neighbours and interested community members to come to the current orchard development in East Wardell.
