Strategic Partnerships

Agribalance

agribalanceAgribalance is an independent precision services company started by Gielie Schreuder, who identified a need for precision farming solutions in the viticultural and horticultural industries.  

Agribalance has partnered with some of the leading agricultural consultation companies such as First Fruits Consulting, who offers precision farming services in South Africa, to provide their clients with the latest variable rate application technologies. Agribalance provides a comprehensive solution including it’s own tractors, variable rate spreaders and loaders so that producers can continue as normal with their daily activities.  

During the precision soil sampling process which includes analysis and recommendations, shape files are generated for use in the customised GPS equipment of Agribalance.  Variable rate application then ensures that every area of land is ameliorated optimally according to the soil grid on which sampling took place.  

In addition to variable rate soil amelioration, Agribalance can also apply all fertilizers during the course of the production season.  Variable rate fertilizer programs compiled after assessment of variance picked up on NDVI maps, can also be applied by Agribalance.
