CASE Construction TLB Assists Farmer in Organic Practices
Organic farming, also known as ecological agriculture, has become a buzzword in today’s farming industry as more emphasis is placed on environmental preservation and the enhancement of food quality. Organic farming is done through the use of natural and organic fertilisers such as compost manure. This is a viable alternative in comparison to chemical based fertilisers that raises ecotoxicity and health hazard concerns.
Mfiso Matlou, a vegetable farmer, has adopted these organic practices. Mfiso has been a producer of cucurbits, cabbage and green maize since 2012 and has also been offering agricultural training through his company.
“We have remained relevant by understanding our target market and supplying them with high quality products as per requirement and also keeping our production inputs at a low by using technological advanced machinery and techniques.” says Matlou.
“We intend on growing and shifting from convention methods to organic farming hence why we bought the Case TLB in order to easily and effectively load kraal manure which will be turned into compost.”
The CASE 570T and 580 TLB forms part of his fleet and is used to carry out daily farming activities.
“CASE machines were chosen for its quality and durability. The technical team is very supportive and quickly responds as per request.” says Matlou.
Customers around the world have built their success on the power and performance of the CASE backhoe. As the modern eco-friendly movement is growing, CASE acknowledges the need for a compact, fuel efficient machine which ensures outstanding reliability and durability. We don’t like to waste time and fuel, and we know you don’t either which is why our FPT engine is equipped with a Charge Air Cooler to improve and optimise air induction. This solution provides outstanding fuel consumption during both production and travel, and especially on backhoe digging applications. Our engines are also made to run on up to 20% biofuel blends, reducing their environmental impact even more.
“CASE TLB’s are often used for recycling purposes. It is reflective of the sustainability goals that are in place across the wider CNH Industrial Group, as we all aim to leave a greener footprint. We are pleased that Mfiso Matlou and his company are playing their part in this.” said Graham Forte, Managing Director, CASE Construction Equipment Southern Africa.
