Farmers Agri-Care (Pty) Ltd is a network of agents who provide an integrated, on-farm crop protection service to commercial farmers in KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa).
Farmers Agri-Care aims to make a meaningful contribution to profitable crop production for growers, and to sustainable food production for consumers.
- This requires a long-term view of the industry in which we participate,
- And close relationships with the stakeholders we represent.
The science of crop protection has made considerable progress since the old approach of pest control.
- Today crop protection extends into new dimensions of yield improvement and crop enhancement,
- As the fragile agricultural environment becomes better understood, sustainable agriculture has also become central to the company’s philosophy,
- And with rapidly-changing consumer dynamics, food safety and food quality are new concepts in which Farmers Agri-Care has become involved.
Why we are differentToday's high-performing farmers are focussed on the output-end of their businesses: crop enhancement, crop quality and yield increases.
Farmers Agri-Care agents have the knowledge platform to help growers reach these levels of performance:
- Agronomic knowledge: of the crops, soils, climatic conditions on the farms they service
- Biological knowledge: of the weeds, pests, diseases affecting these crops
- Technical knowledge: of the products they recommend to provide effective crop solutions
This concept of knowledge underpins our slogan:
“Sharing the Benefits of Knowledge”.
