Our market intelligence report is for investors, farmers, agri-businesses, manufacturers and service providers in a number of areas – conservation agriculture, controlled environment agriculture and precision agriculture, with a strong focus on renewable energy, energy efficiency and water efficiency.
GreenAgri - a one-stop information portal for farmers, researchers, businesses and NGOs interested in smart agricultural practices, initiatives and research.
The biggest opportunities for farmers, green technology manufacturers and service providers are in:
Opportunities in energy audits and greener technologies for Western Cape’s 22,574 agriculture sector facilities, including packhouses and cold stores.
70% of grain producers in Western Cape practice CA, with significant scope for expansion in other agriculture sectors.
Market for manufacturing of no-till machinery is worth R1.14 billion, with opportunities for local manufacturing and export to the rest of Africa.
Our work aims to drive the greening of agricultural value chain in the Western Cape in two ways:
Growing the market for green technologies, systems and processes in agriculture and agri-processing.
Developing sustainable and competitive agricultural value chains
We do this through GreenAgri and the support we provide through the agriculture sector desk - market intelligence, advocacy and networking opportunities to investors, businesses and farmers in the agriculture sector. For more information, see the links on the left.
