PLANTING | Maize Grain | Maize Silage

We plant maize for GRAIN & SILAGE. We have two, 6 row John Deere planters, with self loading augers. These augers can load bulk fertiliser from our bulk trucks without awkward manhandling. It is cheaper using bulk fertiliser.

SIDE DRESSING

Fertilizing of maize in its initial flush of growth is important and we have a purpose build machine for this task, it lighty cultivates and spreads fertiliser right beside the plant so that the plant can readily draw the nutrients up, ensuring greater productivity.

We can also broadcast with a Twin-Spinner spreader.

Helicopter spreading of urea is anotther option, which has proved to be a good alternative especially if ground conditions are too wet or the crop has grown too high for the conventional means of side dressing.

HARVESTING

Maize is harvested with our 4WD John Deere 9550 combine fitted with an 8 Row head. A John Deere rubber track system is available if ground conditions are wet and soft at harvest time.
