The AgriDome is one of the most versatile dome shelter structures in South Africa — the structure of 100 uses. Each dome shelter offers you a combination of the finest materials available and design. Every detail you desire is carefully crafted. Every option you select is seamlessly added — all to exceptional standards to create a customized pre-engineered structure that is uniquely yours.

AgriDome sizes are available in standard widths or can be can be customized to fit your needs.

You cannot expect your livestock to put on more weight in harsh African conditions. We understand the implication of the high costs of steel structures. We know you are losing money because of the harsh conditions.
That is why we would like to introduce you to the AgriDome. The PVC covered Dome structure that is durable, requires low maintenance and very cost effective. You can now create the optimal conditions for maximum production while keeping animals safe from theft and healthier than ever before.

Our Engineer Designed AgriDome cost less than lower and non-rated conventional shelters and are rated to 249 kms per hour – We call it “Super Strong” … You’ll call it
“Peace of Mind!”

Clear Span Interior Space:

Although the membrane-covered frame structure is not the only system that has clear span capabilities, it is the only system when based on economics, building deflection and ease of installation that makes economic sense.

With Agri-Dome widths of 6 to 30 meter, membrane-covered frame structures are an ideal solution for every building application imagined and are backed by a 10-year warranty from the manufacturer. From South-Africa to North-Africa, these structures have proven to be a building solution in the harshest weather conditions on earth.


R1 billion Agro Processing Support Scheme from the DTI.
The Department of Trade and industry has announced an Agro Processing Support Scheme incentive, to the value of R 1 billion! The incentive is open at the moment until further notice from the DTI. The aim of the support scheme is to stimulate investment by the South African agro-processing / beneficiation (agri-business) enterprises. The investment should demonstrate that it will achieve some of the following:
Increased capacity, employment creation, modernised machinery and equipment, competitiveness and productivity improvement and broadening participation.

It specifically focusses on the following areas:

Food & beverage value addition and processing including Black winemakers
Furniture manufacturing
Fibre manufacturing
Feed production
Fertilizer production

The benefits of taking part in this initiative is that one can have access to a cost sharing grant of between 20% – 30%, with a maximum grant of R20 million over a 2-year investment period.
There is also an option to apply for an additional 10% grant if all the following criteria has been met:

Employment * increase base year employment by 25%
Transformation * BBBEE level 1
Geographical * located in state-owned industrial areas or areas with unemployment higher than 25%
Local procurement * procure > 70% of inputs or equipment & machinery locally manufactured

Conditions attached to take part in the Agro Processing Support Scheme are that one must have a BBBEE rating of at least level 4 You must retain or create employment 50% of inputs (raw materials) must be sourced from South African suppliers 30% of inputs must be sourced from black South African suppliers

Water scarcity prevention

According to the Solar Impulse Foundation there are a ways available to us to prevent water scarcity:
1. Sustainable water management
Improving water infrastructure must be a priority, as water conservation and efficiency are key components of sustainable water management. Solar desalination and smart irrigation systems are great examples of clean technology for water efficiency and control.

2. Reclaimed water
Rainwater harvesting and recycled wastewater also allow to reduce scarcity and ease pressures on groundwater and other natural water bodies. Groundwater recharge, that allows water moving from surface water to groundwater, is a well-known process to prevent water scarcity.

3. Pollution control & better sewage treatment
Without proper sanitation, the water becomes full of diseases and unsafe to drink. That is why addressing pollution, measuring and monitoring water quality is essential. Besides, improving the sewage systems in specific areas is another way to prevent water scarcity from becoming any worse.

4. Awareness & Education
Education is critical to solve the water crisis. In fact, in order to cope with future water scarcity, it is necessary to radically reform all forms of consumption, from individual use to the supply chains of large companies.

What is important to note is that everyone must and has the capacity to use water in a responsible manner. Unfortunately not everyone has necessary insight and knowledge to even realize the severity of the Water Scarcity issue, and it is therefore your and my duty to educate to around us that everyone can help to make a difference.

We look forward to seeing you at our next Aqua Live Streaming AgriDome Expo to be held on Thursday 13 August 2020, at 15:00 CAT
