A leading South African Plum Producer
From exceptional orchards to exceptional plums
A commitment to the very best quality fruit
Exemplary farm management practices
We utilise high-density trellised planting systems. Root stocks are used which have a dwarfing influence on the plum trees. Trellising ensures higher fruit yields, good fruit sizing and colouring as well as less wind damage.
We lay a strict emphasis on environmentally friendly agricultural practices. Leaf and soil laboratory analyses are undertaken to identify any deficiencies in trace elements and to ensure that fertilisers are used only when necessary. The irrigation water in our dams and other water sources is also laboratory tested on a regular basis to ensure an acceptable quality. Recognising that water is a scarce resource, computerised irrigation scheduling systems are used to conserve water.
We adopt an Integrated Pest Management approach (IPM) so that pesticides are not applied unnecessarily. This means that there is an ongoing monitoring of orchards for the control of pests and plant diseases.
