Justin Platt is one of only three Southern African-registered consultants for the internationally respected Brookside Laboratories Incorporated (BLI), Ohio, USA. BLI offers growers and consultants an outstanding analytical service for world-class, highly efficient and professional testing of soils, leaf matter, fertilisers and water.
Zylem facilitates the supply of agricultural inputs via an extensive distributor network. Inputs include its own range of biological soil conditioners and foliar feeds plus selected plant and soil health products from Nutri-Tech Solutions, Australia, which are either imported or manufactured locally under licence.
Zylem advises growers throughout the country on the effective use of biological inputs which are the cornerstone of sustainable farming. Knowledge of soil health is key and this is where laboratory testing is vital, such as with BLI or local laboratories that are ISO accredited.
Since 1992, Zylem has represented the interests in Southern Africa of Netherlands-based potato breeding companies and is currently responsible for varieties owned by Stet Holland B.V. The scope of our expertise includes the development and commercialisation of seed for consumer and commercial purposes.
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.
