“The rules were simple. To enter the competition, we needed a photograph of the contestant with one or more of BMG’s Boer Slim/Smart Farming items – a cap, belt buckle, shirt, bumper sticker, or rain meter,” explains Carlo Beukes, agricultural manager, BMG. “The winner - Lionel Smit - has won a Gedore 144 piece tool trolley for posting his photograph on Facebook.
“BMG’s Boer Slim/Smart Farming initiative assists farmers cope with constantly changing trends in the agricultural sector. Through the Boer Slim/Smart Farming project, BMG’s team of agricultural experts offers farming sustainability solutions throughout Africa that focus on effective food production, the correct use of suitable equipment for the specific task and the efficient application of advanced technologies.
“We work closely with farmers to demonstrate that the investment in the latest equipment is necessary to maximise productivity.
“A recent case study is testament to this. BMG was approached by a local farmer who wanted to accelerate his tobacco drying process and expand crop production, but was restricted by power supply limitations. After the installation of BMG Motoline variable speed drives, the farmer is now able to run 22 tobacco drying containers at once, where previously he could only run and alternate between nine drying containers at any one time. BMG’s solution has enabled the farmer to more than double his crop production output.”
BMG’s agricultural portfolio encompasses a wide range of wear parts, including heavy duty bearings, which have been specially designed, upgraded and advanced for extended service life in tough conditions locally.
Also in the agricultural portfolio are seals, adhesives and gaskets, harvester and planter chains, as well as gearboxes and electric motors. The range also encompasses PTO shafts and accessories, tie rod cylinders, drive belts and pulleys, couplings, fasteners and hand and power tools.
