Agricane is committed to providing an efﬁcient and experienced Survey Team to any agricultural development. It is capable of achieving the demanding standards required within agriculture and general surveying needs. The industry requirements for a more modern approach to land surveying have been borne out with the introduction of electronic survey data gathering and the use of GPS equipment.
Agricane has designed over 150,000ha of irrigation systems in Africa in the last 16 years. These have included furrow systems, paddy systems for rice, overhead systems such as Centre pivot and sprinklers as well as drip and floppy systems. Our credibility lies with the fact that most of our senior professionals have had in-line management experience of actual successful operations.
The Agricane team is regionally regarded as leaders when it comes to furrow and flood irrigation, based on many years of proven experience in the irrigated cane and rice industries. Furrow and flood irrigation needs highly accurate land forming to be cost effective and a deep understanding of the relationship between soils and water uptake in the design considerations.
Agricane Ltd has over the years evolved into a reputable GIS developer and implementor for customised farm operations. Our qualified and experienced personnel offer cost effective GIS solutions and training effective farm decision making and management.
Our GIS solutions integrate as-built farm mapping, soil mapping, farm assets, farm operations and human resources into a single user friendly management tool.
Agricane realises that at the start of any sizeable irrigation installation there is the Bulk Water supply conveyance system. We undertake these designs as a specialist requirement for the agricultural business and adapted civil engineering to suit agricultural applications. Our design team has professional civil engineering status, who are currently accredited with the South African Institute of Civil Engineers.
