Using AI to grow avocados in South Africa


SupPlant, a precision agriculture hardware-software solution is an Israeli technology that

has expertise in sensing plant stress.


Accurate irrigation management - AVOCADO


They have converted this expertise into a system that uses agronomic algorithms, sensors,

artificial intelligence, big data and cloud-based technology in order to achieve these goals.

They have developed a data model using predictive algorithms based on analyzing 100M

avocado data points.


The sensors, which measure the stress of the plant, are placed in five locations of the plant

(deep soil, shallow soil, stem/trunk, leaf, avocado) and monitor plant and fruit growth patterns.

The actual water content in the soil and plant health data. In addition to this data, SupPlant

monitors real-time and forecasted climatic data and forecasted plant growth patterns.


All this info is uploaded every 30 minutes to an algorithm in the cloud that provides farmers

with precise irrigation recommendations based on the integration of all this data.
