With heavy investments in agriculture and agro-processing industries, MeTL Group is committed to spearheading transformation, equipping Tanzanian farmers with technology that increases productivity, crop yields, and ultimately, livelihoods. Founded as a one-stop shop for farming solutions in 2013 for all Tanzanian farmers, MeTL Agro provides Tanzania’s large farming community with reliable farm implements at economical prices.
MeTL Agro supplies pre- and post-harvest equipment that conforms to international quality standards. The Company stocks disc ploughs, disc ridges, tipping trailers, non-tipping trailers, slashes, boom sprayers, subsoilers, and cultivators, as well as high-quality Mo-branded fertilisers: Mo-Urea, Mo-CAN (Calcium ammonium nitrate), Mo-DAP (Di- ammonium phosphate), Mo-SA (Ammonium sulphate), and various grades of NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium).
Across MeTL Agro product offerings, we supply farmers with competitively priced, quality farm implements. With outlets across Dar es Salaam, Masasi, Iringa, Mwanza, Shinyanga, Kahama, Dodoma, Arusha, Mbeya, Songea, Sumbawanga, Tunduma, and Kigoma, farmers are guaranteed access to our products when they need them. MeTL Agro employs 15 people across the country.
MeTL Agro is TAFE – Tractors and Farm Equipment Limited’s exclusive seller and distributing partner in Tanzania. TAFE is an Indian manufacturer incorporated in Chennai in 1960. It boasts an annual turnover of INR 10,000 crores, the third-largest tractor manufacturer globally and the second-largest in India by volume. TAFE sells over 180,000 tractors (domestically and internationally) annually.
The Group’s long-term partnership with TAFE ensures that it can deliver after-sales services at minimal to zero cost. Each tractor sold by MeTL Agro receives three free services, and it provides each customer with a job card that shares service notices for each appointment. MeTL Agro has 200 TAFE-authorised service centres and more than 100 trained technicians capable of servicing TAFE machines spread across Tanzania. Twice a year, the company brings technicians from India to upskill and update technicians’ product knowledge.
MeTL Agro has sold over 500 TAFE tractors and reached over 10,000 farmers with farm implements, planters, and ploughs. It is our hope that more stakeholders partner with farmers to provide financing opportunities that afford the technical advances required to develop the agriculture industry.
