Agriculture services

Infrastructure services

Unitrans Africa use bulldozers to bring about bush clearing and soil ripping to effectively clear native vegetation. Ongoing ploughing turns over the uppermost soil and thereby bring fresh nutrients to the surface. To further complement the land preparation, harrowing is implemented to break up the soil further for more productive use. Through ridging the fields are contoured to provide the desired drainage.

Agricultural automation is core to mechanisation of which GPS guided auto-steer and laser guided land levelling are two notable applications. Private road building and maintenance further support field production and haulage services. The strategically located operations have broad experience to use heavy duty equipment such as excavators and dumpers to develop and maintain drainage networks.

Agriculture transportation

Field production services

Agricultural Transport of Sugar Cane

The agricultural production systems include mechanised and automated land preparation, planting, soil and plant profiling building yield maps, leading to a host of variable rate applications of fertilizer, pesticides and ripening services. As part of the Unitrans Africa specialist design competencies, the team designs and specify equipment to minimise the impact on the fields. This competency is a world class one available in Africa.
