With a rich history of 'firsts' in Africa, Balton CP has always been at the forefront of Africa's ever-developing agriculture sector, introducing modern technologies such as drip irrigation, greenhouses and soluble fertilizers on the African continent. Successful Balton CP projects include installation of bulk handling equipment, grain storage, coffee and cocoa processing and feed mills. We supply and maintain tractors, harvesters and implements in specific markets and remain a leader in the provision of expert agronomy services, constantly assessing grower requirements for seeds, fertilizers and agrochemicals, providing fast and cost effective solutions to those who rely on us.
In recent years Balton CP has pioneered a new approach towards Africa's small scale farmers. The introduction of the award winning Amiran Farmers Kit (AFK), a holistic agribusiness unit, coupling modern technology with training and agro-support has the potential to dramatically improve the lives of millions. This initiative, which has been embraced in over 20 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, has been a catalyst for new and emerging partnerships between Balton CP and Governments, donors, NGOs, foundations, finance and micro-finance institutions, schools, institutions of higher learning and research bodies,creating a new and more harmonized private-sector driven approach to one of Africa's main issues - food insecurity. Balton CP recognizes the significance of introducing and maintaining sustainability in its approach to Agribusiness.
