X Farm implements were designed and engineered on the back of a unique planting concept from Australia, introduced by us to South African soil, which ultimately revolutionized the manner in which broad acre cereal crops were planted on the continent.
This concept, widely known as minimum till planting, allows for the revitalization of previously marginal land, rehabilitated to production status as a result of increased water efficiencies achieved and considerably lower production input costs.
X Farm and its affiliate companies were the first to develop and then to introduce this innovative Australian concept commercially to South African soil. Competitors arrived and may continue to emulate, but farmers know that the real home of authentic minimum till seeding implements is at X Farm. Where competitors have changed and adjusted their offering over time, the X Farm implements have remained unchanged and continue to consistently outperform its competitors.
The remarkable savings that farmers achieve through the deployment of our planters are:
70% in fuel, 80% in cultivation costs, 60% in labour and machinery lifespan is increased exponentially.
In 2001, we set out to adapt this unique planting method for row cropping specifically for summer rainfall areas. Ongoing research and development in design and manufacturing has translated in processes yielding significant results and adding ecologically sustainable means of cropping to our mission. X Farm implements boast also being one of the market leaders in the planters for
Fast growing sales and expanding markets have simply underlined the confidence the industry has developed in our products and the planting concept.
