Looking at the geographical set-up of Abantu Holdings’ continental agricultural projects, we consider climate as a key factor in determining the kinds of crops to grow, crop yields, and the type of livestock that will thrive in the region. Some of the climatic factors we consider are the amount and distribution of rainfall during the year, length of the growing season, severity of the winters, and the possibility of such natural hazards as drought (particularly in the southern Africa region), flood (for instance, as the case with Mozambique over the years), hailstorms, windstorms, and the like.

We pay much attention to soil management because good soil is perhaps the most essential element in farming since it determines not only what can be grown but also whether yields will be high or low.
