Sustainability

Rivalea employs proven and sustainable management practices and techniques such as minimum tillage to prevent land degradation and to improve soil water holding capacity.

Rotation of crop varieties and chemical groups is an important strategy the company uses to prevent weed resistance.

Precision farming techniques are employed to assist with stubble retention and accurate seed and fertiliser applications. Plant nutrients recovered from the pig farming operations assists in optimising more sustainable fertiliser use.

Experienced agronomists provide professional advice on responsible and efficient control measures for pest management, weed control and optimum fertiliser application.
