Monosem

Our business started 18 years ago with South African farmers seeking a higher level of mechanisation. Their unique requirements were, and still are, the key ingredient in developing solutions and sourcing components from all over the world that we combine into purpose built machinery to meet the farmers’ needs today and in the future.

Vegetable Planters

The Monosem MS vegetable planter is by far the best selling pneumatic planter for vegetables and other fine seeds in South Africa. Every year since Carrotech started marketing it in 2000 it sells in numbers by far higher than any other vacuum fine seed planter on the South African market.

Today there are more than 230 of these planters running in this country. They are used in every province, in the roughest conditions, right through the year, and they give their owners many years of good service without much maintenance.

Strip-Till

Strip-Till is the practice that promises the advantages of both, no-till and conventional farming practices. Strip-tilling fractures compacted soil. And since strip-till does not dry out soil like conventional methods of seed bed preparation, it prevents excessive moisture loss. But because farming practices vary from farm to farm between Bergville and Koppies there is not just one Strip Till machine that will satisfy everybody.
