FES provides a wide range of contracting and leasing solutions across the agricultural supply chain using advanced technologies to drive increased yields, productivity and reduce input costs.
Precision land preparation for close to 3,000 hectares annually. Land preparation includes multiple operations such as precision levelling and ridging, ploughing, ripping, herbicide application, crop spraying and drip irrigation installation.
All are critical for crop production as this optimises the soil structure, planting and seeding operations, directly impacting planting, root development and uptake of nutrients and moisture, which influence the final yield delivery.
FES can assist with infrastructure needs, such as roadway maintenance, field clearance, bush removal, transport/haulage and spreading of the by-products of the sugar manufacturing process; for example, filter mud and vinasse.
The FES irrigation team provides expert advice and takes care of canal excavation, building, modification and maintenance services to manage water flow, e.g. in estates, such as the recently completed Kaombe Bulk Water Scheme. We can also assist with the construction of large internal storage dams.
FES uses advanced technologies and smart farming techniques to solve challenges across the entire agricultural supply chain, thereby minimising input cost and maximising yield and efficiencies.
