Zylem provides agricultural technical services aimed at improving sustainable and regenerative farming in Southern Africa. We source and manufacture biological foliar fertilisers and soil conditioners, and are contract growers of seed potatoes.
Regenerative farming is all about returning good health to the soil. A healthy soil means a healthy biome and healthy plants, resulting in reduced input costs and reduced reliance on inorganic fertilisers.
Water shortages are a fact of life and will remain a permanent fixture in the agricultural community of Southern Africa. We can help you implement regenerative farming practices and soil management tools to help overcome existing challenges and develop effective operating systems for the future.
Insects and pests are responsible for substantial crop losses worldwide. Multiple strategies for improved crop resistance reduce the need for broad-spectrum chemical insecticides and facilitate the sustainable intensification of food production.
Regenerative agriculture is the solution for South Africa’s farmers. In this guide, we’ll summarise everything you need to know about regenerative farming, regenerative agriculture methods and regenerative soil practices.
We supply agricultural inputs through our nationwide distributor network. Our products include our own range of biological soil conditioners and foliar feeds as well as selected plant and soil health products from Nutri-Tech Solutions, Australia, which are manufactured locally under licence.
Our expertise includes both the development and commercialisation of seed potatoes. Our potatoes are grown under contract at production facilities in KwaZulu-Natal and other seed production areas in South Africa, and are primarily destined for fixed commercial orders.
