Agrisol Precision Farming

A Sustainable Future

-

We give independent advice to the farmer to help him to farm sustainable and mitigate his risks.

No product sales, Sustainable, Scientific, Accessible, Understandable, Environmental friendly.

WHY AGRISOL?

Agriculture is a science, and we apply it to best fit and complement your way of farming. Unfortunately, the industry leads us to believe that there might be a bottled or bagged solution for every agricultural problem. Alternatively, Agrisol first and foremost focuses on the basics: understanding and improving the health of our soil.

Agrisol cares for our farmers.

On top of that, we also understand agricultural science, and when we say science, we really mean soil.

Plants don’t need chemicals to grow, what they need is fertile soil. Through a sophisticated process of sampling and information gathering, Agrisol takes the guesswork out of natural growth by maximizing the fertility of the soil, while minimising the inherent risk of farming. We do this in close partnership with farmers, walking alongside them every step of the way by means of our mobile-based platform, which is as effective as it is easy to understand.

In short, Agrisol makes sure that the soil in which you plant, grow and harvest your crops will be all the more natural, sustainable, and above all, healthy.

OUR STORY
OUR PAST

Our company was founded in 2010 by our current CEO, GP Schoeman. Initially running the business as a solo entrepreneur, it quickly scaled to what we now know as Agrisol. At first all our data processing was done via a collection of complicated digital spreadsheets. Fairly quickly it became apparent that Agrisol was growing beyond the capacity of our current technology, and that we needed to develop our own software solution to better serve our expanding client base.‎

Early in 2014 Agrisol contracted Solution Server to co-develop and create a custom application for our unique business case. After an ongoing successful relationship, Solution Server amalgamated with Agrisol in November 2016.

OUR PRESENT

We are now in the privileged position to have a dedicated in-house software development team, that not only maintains and services our needs, but also continues to innovate new technological solutions on behalf of our customers.‎

Agrisol leads the way locally and internationally when it comes to our industry and our particular knowledge base. We curate a vast network of agricultural experts, and are championing the case of our farmers, as we are expanding our own footprint.‎

OUR FUTURE

Whatever the future holds, we will stay focused on the clear goals and vision that has guided Agrisol towards becoming the industry leader that it is today, namely staying focused on our research, spearheading innovative thinking, and continuing to translate complex data into understandable information for those that need it most - our farmers.‎

OUR PRODUCT

Agrisol developed an advanced geographical information system which are continually being improved and expanded on. After we collect grid samples, we extract other relevant information like physical soil data, satellite images and weather statistics for every field, enabling us to give the absolute best and up to date recommendations to our customers. To make the data more accessible to the farmer and his contributors, we have developed a digital environment where every user has immediate access to the most relevant data on his mobile device or desktop.


Built into this dynamic digital environment, is the ability to invite external collaborators or service providers. With the relevant farmer’s permission, they can then have access to the most recent data, enabling them to customise and target their services and products specifically for our customers. Typical service providers may include companies that provide agricultural resources like fertilizer, lime and chemicals, or even business services like financing or insurance.


This cutting edge development will ensure that the farmer has continuous access to a single platform, that instantly connects him with all the relevant products and services he might need, already tailored to his specific needs.

Our Services

ABOUT US
Here are a couple of things that we definitely don’t do:

We don’t sell fertilizer, lime and chemicals. Never have, never will.

We don’t report to some controlling body who doesn’t have the farmer’s interests at heart. As your partner in agriculture, Agrisol is fully independent.

We don’t introduce foreign elements into the ground just for the sake of it. Only where there is a very real shortage, do we supplement the fertility of the soil with necessary nutrients and enhancers.

We don’t guess. All our recommendations are based on technologically surveyed physical, scientific and other relevant data sets, finding correlations with the unique plant variant, and suggesting the best course of action.

We never work alone. We believe in partnering. The farmer is our true collaborator, and for him or her to be involved in the process is a big part of our success. In fact, its one of the main reasons why we love what we do.

Meet The Team

The Agrisol team is a passionate group of motivated individuals, whose sense of excellence absolutely sets them apart when it comes to innovation and service delivery. Our greater team breaks up into smaller units that specialise in their respective areas of expertise, namely:

Between all our individual members we have accumulated vast experience in not only the technological side of our business, but also in dealing with the local farm community on a personal level.
