Crown Analytical Services

CAS is a plant pathology business based in Moree. It was established by agronomists Rob Long and Drew Penberthy in 2008 who developed the first commercial stubble test for Crown Rot. In 2019, Drew sold his shareholding. Subsequently CAS partnered with Delta Agribusiness to align with their precision ag services as well as Goanna Ag's soil moisture probes and the GoSat analytics.

In 2011 CAS partnered with SARDI to service their broadacre soil and stubble borne disease DNA test, PREDICTA® B, in the northern growing region. We are now developing a similar testing service for soil borne diseases in cotton.

Since 2012 CAS have conducted Crown Rot Tolerance trials under a program funded by GRDC and commercial wheat breeding companies such as AGT and Longreach Plant Breeders.

CAS also provides cotton tissue testing for nutrition to assist with critical cotton management decisions.
