Description of Project:

Goldfields Mining House decided to establish a flower growing project at one of their facilities in Carletonville. Vegtech was awarded the tender based on the specifications set down by the client. The tender called for 10 hectares of pad & fan greenhouses with an 8m span width, as well as a separate nursery for rose propagation. Growing troughs with Coir medium were also to be supplied by Vegtech. Netafim supplied the complete fertigation and climate control solution for the project. The whole project was completed within six months of the awarding of the tender.
