Clear trees and weeds with Rovic Africa Prize

In celebration of its fourth birthday, Rovic Africa is awarding two lucky winners a knapsack sprayer, as well as a pair of Bellota secateurs and a lopper to the value of almost R1 700. 

Since July 2017 Rovic Africa has served commercial, small commercial and subsistence farmers north of the South African border. This led to specialised personnel identifying the unique needs of African farmers and building effective solutions for the African farming community.

Rovic Africa is an integral part of Rovic Leers, making full use of all the available infrastructure and expertise available in this 94-year-old agricultural mechanisation company. An established dealer network with agencies in almost 20 African countries, including Angola, Kenya, Nigeria and many more, ensures farmers receive excellent after-sales service with the products they buy from Rovic Africa.

After four years of building relationships outside of South Africa, this network is still growing and to celebrate this and show our gratitude, Rovic Africa, together with African Farming, have put together the two prize packages, consisting of a knapsack sprayer, a secateur and a lopper.

The 16-litre knapsack sprayer is engineered to withstand the toughest conditions and most strenuous use. For decades, farmers have been using this knapsack sprayer to kill unwanted weeds around buildings, in crops and around fence lines. It can be used to control insects with insecticide, and to apply foliar feeds as well as fertiliser to the soil. It can even be used to dip livestock with pest and parasite remedies. It is a must-have in any farmer’s toolshed. 

The Bellota Proline Universal secateur has a wear-resistant, tempered steel blade for lifelong professional use. This secateur’s unique joint system is easy to adjust, making it precise, simple and stable. The ergonomically designed grip, made from aluminium and covered with an anti-slip coating that adapts to your hand, ensures an easy, clean cut every time. 

The Bellota Proline lopper with its 420mm-long handles, makes those hard-to-reach branches easy to cut. The lopper also boasts wear-resistant, tempered steel blades, ensuring a long life. You’ll be able to boost any shrub or tree’s productivity and make your farm or yard look beautiful and neat with these two reliable cutting tools.
