Sustainable Solutions

We Offer Sustainable Solutions For All Your Agricultural Challenges

For decades, standard agricultural practices around the world have denuded soils and devastated the ecology of farms. This has been done by plying the land with more and more chemical substances, at an ever-increasing cost. More recently, a growing global trend in agriculture to correct these serious issues has been a shift towards sustainable practices that enrich the soil, reduce input costs and improve the quality and yield of crop production. This trend continues to gain irreversible momentum.

At Zylem, we promote the concepts of regeneration and sustainability in agribusiness to ensure current profitability, while securing productivity of the same resources for future generations.

We help commercial farming operations implement sustainable solutions and inputs in a way that is customised and practical, with both short-term and long-term goals in mind.

Holistic Approach

A Holistic Approach to Practices and Products

Regenerative and sustainable farming is all about returning good health to the soil while reducing input costs and reliance on inorganic fertilisers and pesticides.

We engage with farmers to identify solutions to their challenges or problems in different areas of their agriculture businesses. Sustainable farming solutions are not reliant on strict organic principles, but utilise a mix of organic and inorganic inputs to produce biological soil conditioners and foliar feeds. These inputs work hand-in-hand with tried and trusted methods. Methods such as effective composting, cover cropping and green manuring.

Regenerative Farming

The net result of effective regenerative farming practices is:

  • more nutrient-dense food, crops and livestock;
  • fewer inputs and reduced input costs;
  • enhanced soil quality and ecological health.
