FES takes the lead in Zambian land preparation solutions

By 2 min read


Farming and Engineering Services Africa (FES) is proud to offer bespoke land preparation services aligned with the demands of Zambian farmers.

FES, an integrated agricultural solutions provider to the agricultural sector
in Malawi, Zambia and beyond, established in 1967, provides the best value-for-money offering to their clients by focusing on three key areas:

The FES operators have years of experience and know the expectations of farmers.
  1. Time: With tight preparation and planting windows to maximize optimal growing and harvesting conditions, FES is aware of the pressure on Zambian farmers to “get the crop in the ground”. Our fleet is maintained by word-class technicians and staffed by experienced operators to ensure high
    mechanical availability, getting the job done as quickly as possible.
  2. Cost: By perfectly matching machinery and implements to the land preparation operation required, we ensure minimum cost per hectare.
  3. Quality: Our seasoned operators have years of experience. They know the expectations of farmers and do not compromise on the quality of operation.

Apart from traditional land preparation and tillage operations, FES also offers surface and subsurface water management solutions to ensure effective drainage of fields.

FES’s fleet is maintained by world-class technicians.

We offer drone and ground-based topographic surveying, which can be used as an input to design software packages such as OptiSurface for surface water management and Trimble’s -Subsurface software for subsurface drainage design.

These designs can then be implemented, using RTK guidance on their Challenger tractors pulling Miskin ejector scrapers or tile-ploughs.

Furthermore, FES has industry-leading irrigation design and implementation specialists. We are proud to be able to bring Zimmatic and Netafim solutions to farmers in Zambia, offering irrigation reliability and efficiency throughout the season.

To take your production to the next level, FES has partnered with Crop-tomistic Technology Inc to offer soil, water and topography mapping using their SWATBox. This enables farmers to optimize inputs and manage field variability.

FES is not just about equipment; it is about integrated solutions.

AgriLab, part of the FES Group, is the in-house ISO accredited soil laboratory that can analyse soil samples taken in identified management zones to offer variable rate fertiliser recommendations and prescription maps.

Whatever you need, FES is the leading, innovative, integrated and environmentally sound agricultural and equipment solutions provider.
