Charlie Carp recognised as an environmental winner – Banksia Awards 2004
The commitment of NSW Company Charlie Carp to turn an unwanted environmental pest – the European Carp – into a sustainable product has seen it awarded a prestigious national Banksia Environmental Award.
The recognition for Leadership in Sustainable Product Design is the second significant award made to the company and follows the presentation of an Australian Small Business Award for Environmental Best Practice in 2000. Charlie Carp Managing Director, Harold Clapham said the company was very proud to have won the Banksia Award and said he believed it reinforced the very strong environmental credentials of the company.

He said the company had adopted a unique approach and a unique philosophy from day one, turning a damaging pest into a commercial product.
Professional Landscaper and TV personality
In my line of business, using quality products is really important. By quality, I mean, products that work in more ways than one. That is why I use Charlie Carp on all my Gardens and Lawns. It's not only a fantastically effective garden fertiliser ...but it is also cleaning up the waterways of Australia by getting rid of that introduced pest - European Carp. How goods that! Beautiful gardens, cleaner Rivers' now that's a bonus!
Andy Middleton - Canturf Farm Manager
"We have been using carp based products for over 20 years, only recently started using Charlie Carp.
By far, Charlie Carp is superior from the user friendly side whilst applying through a boom spray, and I am getting the results I expect. Charlie Carp is by far the best value per/ha carp product we have used.
We use it on our turf farm and we also incorporate it into our tank mix when we service lawns in the Canberra region.
Hi, I just had to share these pics with you and let you know what a sensational organic fertiliser Charlie Carp is.
The 2 passionfruit vines I only purchased in January and have potted up, kept in pots due to lack of rain so I feed them once a week and I already have set fruit. So thank you & happy gardening! Kind Regards Di Smith
Hi. I spoke to you at the Munno Para Bunnings Gardening Club Meeting on 1st February about our newly planted lawn. I did what you recommended & put "Charlie Carp" on my lawn & thought I'd send you this photo to show you how it looks now after about 2 weeks. Thank you. Zoe

It is my pleasure as president of Manly Warringah Orchid Society and as a professional Horticulturist on behalf of our committee and members to endorse this product. Since using Charlie Carp, I myself have noticed marked improvements in the vigour and overall growth of my plants. In discussion with others, it has been noted that plants respond well, especially after periods of stress such as particularly hot or cold weather, or re-potting. In my opinion, Charlie Carp has become an essential part of my fertilising regime, and it is an invaluable product for any horticulturist, hobbyist or professional alike.
Hi Guys Just a quick note, bought your product on a shopping trip to Bunnings, my chilli plants had tried everything for not much success, wow your product was like a breath of fresh air to them, its obvious I was using all the wrong things...the plants look like they have had a new lease of life, they are going great guns. I am a new client of yours and will stick with it.
Lucerne Grower, Barwon Heads VIC
"Increase from 1100 bales to 1800 bales per cut after application with Charlie Carp. Beautiful new growth. Good whole leaves and not a sign of bugs."
Grain Grower, Deniliquin NSW
"Charlie Carp was aerially applied to our canola as a top dress. Results were outstanding and tissue nutrient analysis was significantly boosted causing yield to improve. A 46% oil content was a further bonus. We believe our change to Charlie Carp is also microbially beneficial to our soil and that our shift away from chemical fertiliser is paying off."
"Our centre pivot irrigated lucerne responded to Charlie Carp with a yield increase of 25% compared to the unfertilised area. 3 weeks after spraying, the area treated with Charlie Carp was 23 inches taller, fresher and more dense. Charlie Carp appeared to benefit the crop by slowing the flowering somewhat."
Grain and Fat Lamb Producer, Deniliquin NSW
"Trials carried out using urea, UAN and Charlie Carp. Yield monitor results showed a 10% yield increase in the Charlie Carp bay. I have been a longtime user of urea. After seeing these results, I will be using Charlie Carp again."
Beef and Hay Producer, Warrnambool VIC
"Several years of using Charlie Carp on pasture, with an estimated 20% increase in pasture. With the way the prices of granular fertiliser are going, I can make multiple applications of Charlie Carp and still be in front."
Golf & Landscape Superintendent Le Touessrok Golf Course, Mauritius
Here at the world renowned Le Touessrok Resort we believe Charlie Carp Organic integrates perfectly into our environmental stewardship programs. We strategically apply Charlie Carp to Greens, Tees, Fairways and all Landscape areas both as a foliar and as a drench, the latter further enhancing our goals in achieving our 'living soil' philosophy. Regular applications allow us to maintain healthy disease resistant turf whilst maintaining excellent visual colour. When it comes to our greens, Charlie Carp delivers superior uniform turf growth which is critical when preparing putting surfaces up to world standards.
The roses at Flemington Racecourse had been grown on Charlie Carp for over 10 years. Terry Freeman the Head Groundsman at the Victoria Racing Club used Charlie all year round. He said the NPK – 10/1/6 of Charlie Carp helped maintain a strong immune system throughout the years which then helped promote a healthy plant and strong green leaf growth which then produced beautiful colourful roses, greener lawns, trees and shrubs at the right time. Coming up to the Spring Racing Carnival time Terry needed to know that he could rely on Charlie Carp to produce award wining results.
As soon as the roses started to bud, Terry used Charlie Carp fortnightly as a foliar spray. The results were perfect, every time.
