Conversations that help you unlock nature's potential.

AECI Plant Health is a South African company within the AECI Group of Companies serving the agricultural sector with pride. AECI Plant Health has been an ally to farmers in Africa for many years, and with the move towards sustainable agriculture, AECI Plant Health with its NuWay® programme, and its extensive range of products and services, aims to work with farmers to preserve our natural resources, restore soil biology and address the need for producing nutritious food.

Agriculture worldwide is under pressure to reduce pesticide and fertilizer usage whilst increasing crop yields to feed a growing world population. There is now a move away from the total reliance on traditional chemicals and synthetic fertilizers towards a more responsible and sustainable approach of cultivating crops that protects the environment and its precious resources.

Our approach is to work hand in hand with the farmer to systematically address each point of influence in the growing of crops in a sustainable and responsible manner. Many of the tools and techniques simply unlock nature’s potential and the genetic potential of the crop.

#01 Khula! joins the AECI family: In conversation with Karidas Tshintsholo

Khula! is a technology company founded in late 2016 by Karidas Tshintsholo and Matthew Piper, the company was founded with the primary purpose of connecting emerging farmers directly with buyers in the formal market.

Through their pilot, they discovered that problems in agriculture are interlinked and you cannot solve one without the other and because of that realization the Khula! ecosystem needed to have a farming inputs supplier to help its growers to produce top quality and consistent produce.

Our host Andre Cilliers speaks to Karidas and Jannie Willemse (business development manager at AECI Plant Health) about the ecosystem approach that Khula! is implementing to add more efficiency to Agriculture through tech.
