Who We Are

Increased water scarcity ask that we continuously reconsider the way irrigation water is delivered to plants. Thís is why Netafim™ exists.

Netafim is the world's largest irrigation company and the global leader in precision irrigation solutions. It is active in 110 countries with 33 subsidiaries and 17 manufacturing plants worldwide, one of which is Netafim South Africa, housed in Kraaifontein in the Western Cape. Netafim South Africa has been serving South Africa and its neighbouring countries with irrigation solutions and services since 1992. In 2018, we were nominated as one of the top subsidiaries in the global company.
A new concept
Netafim was founded in 1965 when it introduced the concept of drip irrigation to the world. Drip irrigation allows producers to apply precise and uniform amounts of water and nutrients directly to the root zone of plants. This brings higher yields, lower water use and less dependency on weather, enabling greater control over yields.
The use of drip irrigation enhances crop planning and irrigation scheduling, reduces manpower requirements and costs and increases profitability. It further optimises moisture and aeration conditions and leads to a concentrated and efficient root zone.
The development of drip irrigation made possible Precision Fertigation™. This is the optimal root- zone management tool, delivering just the right combination of water and nutrients directly to the roots of each plant, according to the development cycles of your crops.
More than drip
Driven by our slogan, ‘Grow more with less™’, our focus goes beyond drip irrigation. We offer holistic irrigation solutions to growers of all shapes and sizes. The aim? To empower these growers to grow more with less.
Our offer includes a wide range of leading irrigation and complementary solutions across all crops, conditions and terrains. This includes drippers and driplines, micro and macro sprinklers, valves, filters, water meters, crop management technology (CMT) and ever-developing digital farming solutions.
