Our Team

A team of experts.

Our Approach

A unique five-step approach.

Terravusa’s five-step approach to combat encroaching flora includes Inspection, Planning, Treatment, Evaluation, and Monitoring. 

Through this approach, we ensure that WE provide effective solutions to OUR clients.

Our experts:

a) Inspect the area to be treated.
b) Assist in planning the best course of action applicable to every uniquely different area or circumstances.
c) Connect the landowner to the distribution agent land aerial application company.
d) Monitor the progress of the visual results and evaluate the results.
e) Provide guidance on the next steps to take (3 year follow-up plan).

1. Inspection

The first step in our approach.


We start with a thorough inspection of the problem area to identify the encroaching species and determine the extent of the infestation.

2. Planning

The second step in our approach.


Based on the inspection, we plan the treatment with the farmer, considering the most effective and sustainable options available.

3. Treatment

The third step in our approach.


Treatment is then applied using our non-toxic herbicides that specifically target the identified encroaching plant species.

4. Evaluation

The fourth step in our approach.


After the treatment, we evaluate the results to determine the effectiveness of the herbicide and make any necessary adjustments.

5. Monitoring

The final and continuous step in our approach.


Finally, we provide aftercare and re-inspection services to ensure the encroaching species does not return and the land remains healthy and productive.

The Encroaching
Species Problem

Understanding the impact of encroaching species on cattle and game farms.

Encroaching flora refers to alien and indigenous plant species that aggressively encroaches and dominate the local ecosystem. These species can have a significant impact on the pasture (grazing availability) of farms, leading to reduced productivity in grazing animals and even health problems for the animals. Encroaching flora can outcompete other plant species for resources such as water, nutrients, and sunlight, leading to a reduction in biodiversity and changes in the soil quality. Encroaching plants may also have allelopathic effects, producing chemicals that inhibit the growth of other plants, leading to an overall decrease in plant diversity.

The impact of encroaching flora on livestock and game farms can be significant, with reduced forage quality and quantity, leading to lower animal productivity and weight gain.

Controlling encroaching flora is vital to maintain the health and productivity of farms. The control methods vary depending on the species and its location, and the degree of infestation. Common control methods include mechanical removal, herbicide applications, and prescribed burning. However, preventative measures such as early detection, rapid response, and good pasture management practices are the most effective long-term control strategies to control the encroachment of encroaching flora on livestock and game farms.

Solutions For
Livestock and Game Farmers

Gain back hectares of grazing space with effective pasture control.

Terravusa is a proud to announce that we offer non-toxic herbicides to help livestock and game farmers manage encroaching flora on their farms. Our products are specifically designed to target encroaching plant species that are known to be harmful and destructive towards grazing areas. The two main products offered by Terravusa are Mezavue 250 EW and Sendero 336 SL, both systemic liquid formulations that can be applied aerially as well as by knapsack sprayer.

Sendero 336 SL is a herbicide that is specifically designed to control Sickle Bush, an indigenous encroaching plant species that can be found in many parts of Africa. Sendero is a non-toxic herbicide that can effectively control the spread of Sickle Bush, thus ensuring that farmers have more grazing pasture for their animals.

Mezavue 250 EW is another non-toxic herbicide offered by Terravusa that is specifically designed to control Opuntia species such as “Queen of the night”, Prickly Pear and Jointed cactus. These invasive plants are common in many arid regions and can be harmful to grazing animals if consumed. Mezavue can effectively control the spread of these encroaching plants, ensuring that farmers have more grazing pasture for their animals.
