Standfirst: Improving farming practices and agronomy know-how 

Tereos maintains close links with the upstream agricultural industry. These links are essential to our ability to respond to the needs of a rapidly growing worldwide population and to the reduction in available agricultural land per capita.Together with our cooperative growers, partners and suppliers, Tereos helps to:

  • Improve farming practices and agronomy know-how
  • Expand the use of mechanization and new farming methods
  • Test and distribute new crop varieties

Wherever we operate, we use precision farming techniques and methods that reduce the soil compaction associated with increased mechanical harvesting.

Tereos’ innovations enable us to:

  • Use new mechanical processes to optimize our sugarcane plantations 
  • Use drones to monitor our sugarcane fields 
  • Use sheeting and straw to cover our sugar beet and protect it from frost, making long-term storage more viable 
  • Improve cassava seeds to increase productivity
