AgCoTech's partnership with Australia’s Government Business Partnership Platform
Research undertaken by Emeritus Professor Peter Windsor, School of Veterinary Science at The University of Sydney, with support from DFAT and Australia’s Business Partnership Program BPP, found medicated molasses blocks for livestock can reduce smallholder farmer poverty & fight climate change.
Working Together with Local Supply Chains
AgCoTech's Closed Loop Carbon Offset Program
Enhancing livelihoods of smallholder farmers in Laos .
Research developed through Australia's Business Partnerships Platform initiative has developed AgCoTech's business model, where medicated molasses blocks will be produced locally in Laos and other countries to provide low cost supplements to smallholder famers.

Our Story .
AgCoTech wanted to do more than just offset carbon, believing carbon offset programs should be able to accomplish more than simply planting a tree.
In addition to developing an innovative way to approach carbon offsetting, AgCoTech is committed to supporting local supply chains to reduce transport carbon footprints, provide local employment which lifts poverty, improves animal health and wellbeing and we encourage gender equality in small agricultural hubs.
After many years of research supported by Sydney University and independent trials all around the world, a patented innovative medicated block technology has been developed.
These medicated blocks allow ruminant (cattle, sheep etc.) to get the maximum nutritional benefit from their feed, resulting in a significant reduction in methane production from the animals and improving their overall health and productivity, which in turn produces higher milk and meat production.
Prof Peter Windsor of the Sydney School of Veterinary Science Australia has issued a report showcasing how these medicated blocks can be used to fight climate change & reduce smallholder farmer poverty. A copy of the report can be downloaded here.
AgCoTech plan to manufacture its technology in local hubs, providing local communities with employment opportunities.
