About Us

Plowcon was established in 1969 with the invention of The Plowcon System®, the aim of which was to reduce the amount of water and power required to irrigate large areas of cotton and maize.

In 1997, 1998 and 1999, this system was used on the award winning crops grown by the ‘Tobacco Grower of the Year’.

Farmers all over Zimbabwe and Southern Africa now use this product for early development of a wide range of crops.

From these beginnings Plowcon (Pvt) Ltd has grown with new products each season.
