SupPlant explains how their agritech tool is aiding local farmers in South Africa. 

 

“Using our system, farmers can manage their precious water resources correctly, prevent

plant stress, reduce fruit loss, improve production, and maximize their crop potential

year after year.”

 

The agritech startup claims that it has assisted South African farmers to reduce their

water usage by 37% in apple crops, increased the lemon crop yield by 60%, and an

increase in macadamia nuts by 21%.

 

With climate change drastically affecting weather patterns and introducing new

climatic conditions not experienced before, SupPlant provides accurate and real-time

reports and alerts to local farmers.
