Pidelta forms part of a group of associated companies under the umbrella of the Plennegy Group, who are leaders in their respective fields in agricultural innovation, technology and production. The company has grown from one small farm in 1973 to its present 8,500+ hectares of mixed and diverse farming units.
We continuously strive to satisfy our clients' needs for specialised agricultural products and services in a professional, environmentally responsible and sustainable manner.
Our farms are located in Umvoti, Winterton, Kaalfontein and Komatipoort districts, of which 3,700Ha are arable and devoted to production of seed crops and sugar cane. We have 2,100 Hectares under irrigation. The non-arable areas on the farms are used for forestry and grazing.
We employ 300 permanent staff across our farms and because seed production and forestry are both labour intensive enterprises we employ a further 1 000 people on a seasonal basis for specialised tasks such as detasseling and harvesting of maize and forestry products. We are significant employers in our areas of farming.
Pidelta is self-sufficient with regard to all agricultural, forestry and related activities; including land prep, planting, spraying and harvesting. We are committed to continuously developing infrastructure such as our dams, irrigation, crop drying, machinery and equipment. Pidelta is continuously investing in cutting-edge technology to ensure that our crops, livestock and forestry products are of the highest quality.
