SMART FARMING!

In Agro Processing Projects, crops are beneficiated by processing the produce. Tomatoes are processed by a farm factory to produce tomato paste. Paste can then be packed into sachets or aseptic drums. Bulk paste is used in the production of various products such as baked beans or in the manufacture of tomato sauce.

WATER DISTRIBUTION

98% of South Africa’s available water is allocated
60% of all water is used by agriculture
31% of all water is lost due to leakages

WATER WITHDRAWALS

Water withdrawals across the country are expected to increase to 18.9km3 by 2035. By then‚ and even with the expansion of the Lesotho Highlands Water Project‚ the country’s available water will be 17.8km3‚ which 1.1km3 less than what is needed to meet demand.

Many Agro Processing, hydroponic projects are largely water neutral. Therefore, given the general unavailability of water as well as the forecasted increased demand over the next two decades, it makes sense to consider such projects.
