About Nichol Trading

Ralph and Dorothy Nichol established Nichol Trading in the late 1950's, Ralph spreading and Dorothy running the business from home whilst raising four children.

In those humble beginnings Single Super Phosphate was the only fertiliser available and once delivered via rail wagon to the small depot in Lockington. The district farmers would then be advised by telephone that spreading was being done in their area.

The 17th September 1993 saw the opening of what is currently home to the business today. The large bulk storage facility on the Northern Highway just north of Rochester also includes a custom blending facility, public weighbridge, truck wash as well as the area to house our new mechanic business and fleet of spreading, tipper and bin delivery vehicles.  
Now moving into its third generation Nichol Trading remains a local, family owned business that has continued to grow from strength to strength, becoming one of the largest fertiliser retailers in northern Victoria. Our business now is the total business solution for your investment; one phone call to arrange your soil tests, recommendations, delivery and spreading.
