About DFM Technologies

DFM Software Solutions, started in September 2000 by Dirk Friedhelm Mercker, (who has a BSc in Maths and Applied Maths, as well as Computer Science from the University Stellenbosch) manufactures and markets highly specialized end–user applications for the agricultural markets. With more than 30 years' experience, DFM Software Solutions have been providing software and hardware support for the last 24 years and currently employs staff in their manufacturing, support and sales teams. We also have a national network of agents throughout the country, making our products much more accessible to clients.

In 2017 DFM Software Solutions made the move to a PTY and has come to be known today as DFM Technologies. We are committed to quality, functionality and strong support. We provide largely agricultural solutions to more than 6500 customers countrywide and have introduced our products to the international market as well. All of our software packages and products are developed and produced locally. Many of our clients utilize MB4000 to implement processes and data capturing. Due to impending water legislation in SA, it has becoming essential for farmers to be able to schedule irrigation effectively and keep records of all activities on the farm, such as chemicals sprayed. We have addressed the new regulations by developing software that can successfully keep track of scheduled irrigations and chemical spray records. With its advanced software, DFM assists farmers to be more environmentally aware and keep accurate records of farm activities.

Our CLP probes have become one of the leading brands in the market, delivering a quality product whilst reducing costs, saving water and increasing yields (some as high as up to 60%).

As experts in irrigation & automation scheduling systems, DFM Technologies is usually involved in every stage of client consultations. From client product selections to implementation to completion, DFM offers continual functional and technical support. Our extensive skills encompass all aspects of implementation and operation. Typically, we are on-site on the farm, providing functional, technical training and support, resolving any and all troubleshooting issues that arise when the client initiates usage in a live setting.

With new products being developed to suit the needs of our market, we will continue to keep our clientele's concerns and suggestions in mind as we create new and improved products.
