Unfortunately from time to time we have to say goodbye. Shadrick has been a part of the Zambian Irritech team for 10 years, during which time he has been an invaluable team member - significantly contributing to our irrigation projects, and the agricultural community in Southern Zambia.

We know that his presence in the office will be missed daily by our staff! Shadrick will be embarking on his own venture, and we wish him nothing but the best. For all Shadrick’s current projects Ross O’Donoghue will be taking the reins, and is remaining in close contact with Shadrick should there be any queries.

All the best Shadrick, and we hope that you will stop in for a cup of coffee whenever you are passing by.

Congratulations to Dave Hubner for winning this month's photo competition!

Irritech’s ladies met bright and early on Saturday morning to tackle this year’s Muddy Princess Race in Giba Gorge, KZN. Adorned in pink and a generous dash of glitter, they climbed, crawled, slid and splashed their way through various obstacles with names like “Water Jail, “Tower of Fear” and “The Spider Web”.

Teamwork being the order of the day, they pulled, pushed and cheered each other along the gruelling course, leaving no woman behind! Loads of laughter and fantastic memories ensure this team will be back again next year. Go Irri-Team!

The third edition of Agritech Expo Zambia took place from 27 - 29 April 2017 at the GART Research Centre in Chisamba. The event draws thousands of visitors and we were excited to be a part of the event once again.

It gave us a chance to showcase the various options available to farmers with their Irrigation needs. The friendly staff were on hand to answer any questions that the public may have had regarding their specific irrigation requirements. Our display showed various irrigation types from a centre pivot to dripline, microjet & dragline. We were thrilled to walk away with the prize for the best Irrigation stand of 2017.
