Our Customer Stories

What our customers say about us

Greg Teske, Elders

I have been utilising Back Paddock since 2006 as a horticultural agronomist, and I have grown to be known as an expert in the area I work in.

The main reason for this is because I’ve been using Back Paddock as the Soil Interpretation & Recommendation platform for so long.

The support from the Back Paddock team has been of paramount importance, with reliable back up service to assist with any issues or concerns. I can only endorse Back Paddock to the highest level of expertise & competence. Very friendly & competent staff, Which I have had the greatest pleasure of being associated with.

Cheers & well done.

Nigel Myers, Cummins Ag

I have been using Back Paddock for over 10 years and have been highly satisfied with the performance of the program and the technical support. Back Paddock provides a platform that meets my needs for planning and managing my clients farm cropping program.

The Back Paddock program provides all the reports that my clients and I need and more. The reports are easy to generate and understand. During the growing season I’m heavily reliant on the Back paddock mobile app as I find this is an essential tool for providing infield advice and generating recommendations.

I feel the best attribute of Back Paddock is the support staff with their friendly approach and promptness to answer questions and listen to suggestions and feedback.

Audra Allan, Nutrien Ag Solutions

I’m currently utilising Back Paddocks Opterra Adviser Pro Bundle which includes SoilMate, Adviser and Opterra Reef products. All three products assist me with my working life to use multiple platforms with the ability to GPS location in field with the mobile app for soil tests, soil test interpretation within industry guidelines ready for recommendations, export and import data and import Shapefiles for mapping in Opterra.

Back Paddock has an extensive online training modules or their friendly staff can assist with their Quick Support by contacting their Help Desk.

Having the ability to access information historic or current under the one umbrella certainly ensures information doesn’t get lost and available readily when needed.

Vince Giacometti, Nutrien Ag Solutions

I have been using Back Paddock for the past 15 years, over that time I have done many hundreds of soil tests per year.

As most will know, errors do happen when sending that many tests away and this is when Back Paddock has come to the fore in helping me many times fixing my problems. In all the years of sending tests we have not lost any (touch wood).

Keep up the good work Back Paddock and hope we have a great future together.

Many thanks.
