2020 Vision


Looking back on our vision for 2020 and matching our expectations with the reaslised results is certainly cause for celebration! 
 
20 20 Vision in 2020...

NEW PLANTATIONS:

At Katlego Sitrus, we believe in continuous improvement, not only when it comes to machinery - but especially with our orchards!
We are currently busy planting 33ha Midknight valencias in well prepared fertile land on Lesedi. 

We are looking forward to (at long last!) harvest the first crop from the orchards planted with the following varieties in 2016:

Eureka lemon 
Cara Cara navel 
Cambria navel
Late mandarin 

New plantations added in 2019:
Cambria navel (40ha)
Bhahianinha navel (10ha)

  
 
AUTOMATION:
Having invested quite heavily in automating our pack house has certainly proven it's worth.
The result equates to consistant quality and packing standards as well as enabling us to increase our remuneration to staff!

 


MECHANISED HARVESTING:
Our brand new, fast loading mechanised trailers - aptly named "Sebuku" is another in-house developed success story. They are the main reason we have been able to run our pack house at a constant volume of 180tonnes per day.



STATE OF THE ART SPRAY
TECHNOLOGY:

The revolusionary technology behind our new sprayers have left a huge dent in our crop protection budget!
A reduction of 40% less chemicals used is no small saving.

GOING EN-SUITE:
Housing facilities for our staff have been upgraded with en-suite bathrooms equipped with showers and flushing toilets.
