Abstract

Farming production in Africa is among the main challenges of our civilisation. Large-scale farm management in semi-arid countries like Sudan, is even more challenging. Since early 2015, we are assisting a prominent player in the local agricultural sector, with the goal to improve the global farm management skills, as well as implementing regenerative practices at large-scale and adapted to the low rainfall context.

Details

Strategy to transition

In two years-time, we set up and completed a strategy to transition from conventional to minimum tillage practices in an operation of over 35,000 Ha. From equipment choice and design to technical itineraries; together with staff training, on-field demonstration and test plots.

It’s all about management!

We are engaged through a long-term, global farm management support with the view to unlock crop productivity while optimising financial return and risk mitigation. To do so, we assist our client with crop planning strategy, farm management software implementation, professional reporting tools, KPI definition and monitoring, input cost monitoring, mapping and topography solutions.

Soil at the heart of every decision

In each one of our actions, we focus our agronomical strategy around soil health. Soil and sap analyses and their interpretation, cover crop and minimum tillage practices are our main action levers.
