AgriSil K50® and stress tolerance.

Andermatt Madumbi

Stress and silica: 
Although silica is not essential for plant growth and development, it has many benefits. Studies have shown that silica increases the plant’s ability to produce antioxidants, protecting the plant from harmful reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reducing subsequent yield losses.

Plants are also capable of depositing silica below the cell walls. This increases cell wall strength and reduces the risk of cells collapsing or bursting, further guarding against environmental stress. Strong cell walls contribute to the improved uptake of water and minerals and add an extra level of protection against pathogens.

Madumbi’s silica solution - AgriSil K50®: 
One of the most efficient ways of applying silica to plants is in the form of monosilicic acid. AgriSil K50® is a potasssium silicate, which is a potassium salt of silicic acid. This is a highly soluble form of silicon which means it is readily available for uptake by plants.

Activate N®

Biologiese vennoot vir bestuur van sintetiese stikstof.

Deur Sias Leipoldt, Andermatt Madumbi

Die uitloog van sintetiese kunsmis en veral stikstof wat uiteindelik in waterbronne beland, is ʼn wesentlike probleem en ʼn onderwerp wat gereeld onder bespreking kom. Die verhoogde stikstofvlakke in waterbronne veroorsaak opbloei van alge wat baie nadelig vir enige waterlewe kan wees. Sintetiese kunsmis veroorsaak die meeste stikstofbesoedeling, maar dit is ook omdat kunsmis die meeste toegedien word in voedselproduksie wêreldwyd. Om stikstofbesoedeling te verminder, beteken nie dat produsente moet oorskakel van sintetiese na organiese kunsmis nie (per eenheid kan sekere organiese kunsmisstowwe net soveel tot stikstofbesoedeling bydra) – die antwoord lê eerder in ʼn holistiese benadering en die kombinasie van sintetiese en organiese kunsmis sowel as die insluiting van stikstofbindende organismes byvoorbeeld Andermatt Madumbi se Activate N®.

Wat is Activate N®?
Activate N® is ʼn kombinasie van voordelige bakterieë (Bacillus subtilis en Herbaspirillum seropedicae) met die vermoë om N2 gas uit die atmosfeer te bind in ʼn plantbeskikbare formaat (Ammonium). Die beginsel is dieselfde as Rhizobium entstowwe op peulplante, met die groot voordeel dat hierdie bakterieë in Activate N® op alle gewasse aktief is. Die formulasie bevat nie net vrylewende bakterieë nie, maar ook ʼn endofitiese isolaat. Die vrylewende bakterieë leef in die risosfeer (die area rondom die wortels) en fillosfeer (mikro-omgewing op die bogrondse plantoppervlaktes), en benut plantafskeidings as voedselbron en in ruil verskaf dit stikstof aan die plant.

Nisboere Seisoen 6 | Moringa

Maboang Matlou is ʼn nisboer soos min. Haar besigheidsvernuf, en belangstelling in die potensiaal van die spesialisgewas waarmee sy boer, was die dryfveer agter Lefakong Farms, haar nisonderneming in Hammanskraal. Sy is passievol oor voedselsekerheid en om mense se lewensomstandighede te verbeter. 

Introducing MOBIOSTIM by Monutrix 

A plant-based growth stimulant.

Spraying avocado and citrus at flowering and fruit set with MOBIOSTIM dramatically increase yield because the Cytokinins in MOBIOSTIM counter act the abscisic acid which causes flower and fruit drop. From the trial data shown, the size of avocados also increase due to the benefit Cytokinins provide in increased cell division, and thus promoting fruit growth.

The chart shows trial results from two farms in Limpopo and are reflective of trials on other farms.

Moringa - a natural biostimulant

Gerhard Cronje and Sam Worthingzen established the Moringa Oleifera Tree farm in Limpopo, South Africa. 

In 2020, MOBIOSTIM was launched: a disruptive plant to plant biostimulant. A biostimulant’s function is to stimulate natural plant processes to enhance and benefit nutrient uptake, nutrient efficiency, tolerance to environmental stress, and crop quality.

We believe that agriculture is the solution to climate change. By fixing agriculture we also solve other problems such as employment, food security and people’s heath through better nutrition. 

"Nutrition is the building block of life.
The building unit of the planet is nature.
The building unit of any great organisation is the individual."
- Sam Worthingzen -

Nisboere | Seisoen 6

Landbougeleenthede vir almal

"HOOP – ʼn Vierletterwoord gelaai met betekenis. Hoop is een van die belangrikste woorde in tye van onsekerheid soos nou. Almal beleef tye waar ons vol hoop is, en ander tye waar ons sukkel om hoopvol te wees. Om te lewe met hoop trek mense en hulp na jou toe aan.

Om hoopvol te wees, bly steeds ʼn keuse. Dit is juis waarom Laeveld Agrochem so passievol is oor Nisboere en die nuwe geleenthede wat dit aan almal in ons pragtige land bied. Selfs met toegang tot beperkte grond en hulpbronne, kan Nisboere steeds voedsel produseer en 'n positiewe bydrae lewer tot ons ekonomie. Deur HOOP te bring kan ons die wêreld verander."
