Zylem was established in 1991 by Justin Platt to provide integrated agricultural technical services, primarily in crop production. Our client base consists in the main of large, extensive farming organisations throughout Southern Africa, which aim to be at the forefront of their particular field. Key to our goals is the successful implementation of cost-effective, sustainable biological farming practices, which not only produce healthier and more nutrient-dense crops, dairy and stock, but reduce input costs considerably. Our relationship with Brookside Laboratories Inc is synergistic, as the effective management of soil health is reliant on efficient laboratory analysis.
