🌱 Celebrating Progress in Climate Smart Agriculture! Earlier this month, the Technology Innovation Agency (TIA), METOS SA, and TerraClim came together for the final close-out meeting of the Eureka Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) Project. With over 200 Metos by Pessl Instruments weather stations and 100 soil probes installed in the Western Cape, along with cutting-edge data integration by TerraClim, the future of farming is looking brighter than ever. 🌦️🌾Our collaboration didn't stop there! We explored countless opportunities, from supporting smallholder farmers to regional decision-making. Stay tuned as the CSA Consortium maps out its next steps to lead the way in sustainable, climate-resilient agriculture. 🌿🤝 #ClimateSmartAg #InnovationInAgriculture #sustainability ...

Brrr! vanoggend is 0 grade en wit geryp - die koudste nog op Akkerdal vir 2023 - lekker crisp om wingerd skoon en stomp te snoei - die music van Felco skêre in die background sal almal vinnig opwarm om die regte snitte op die regte plek te doen.#akkerdalvinyards #akkerdalwineestate #felco #climatesmart #climatesmartagriculture #farmingforthefuture #franschhoek_sa ...

The last CropView camera station has been installed under the Climate Smart Agriculture project in collaboration with HORTGRO Science and the Department of Conservation Ecology and Entomology at Stellenbosch University. The installation took place at Lourensford Estate in Somerset West, where research on the polyphagous shot-hole borer beetle (PSHB) is currently underway.PSHB was first recorded in South Africa in 2017., and the beetle has spread across South Africa infesting indigenous and introduced tree species. Symptoms associated with infestation can include staining from sap, gumming, sawdust, white powder, or frass, ultimately disrupting the flow of nutrients and water in the tree that leads to branch dieback and potential death of the tree.Currently there is limited information on the progression of infestation and infection in deciduous fruit trees grown in a commercial setting. This project therefore focusses on monitoring tree growth, fruit development and fruit quality, as well as overall tree health post infestation.Metos SA’s Cropview camera stations are state-of-the-art optical camera systems supported with artificial intelligence (AI) software. The station will take one high-resolution photograph daily and measure important weather parameters such as temperature, relative humidity, leaf wetness and precipitation.We are looking forward to this collaboration to aid in providing valuable insights on tree decline and the possible economic impact on fruit production and yield in trees infested with PSHB.Thank you to the Hortgro Science Crop Protection team’s, Dr Minette Karsten and Mr Matthew Addison, for making this collaboration possible.#sustainableagriculture#ClimateSmartAgriculture ...

Outsmarting tomorrow

“As a species, we have failed.” “We are already exceeding the earth’s carrying capacity.”

A tool to decode climate data

TerraClim is a climate and terrain tool for the Western Cape that off ers powerful decision-making support to pome-fruit growers.

Introducing the Climate Smart Agriculture project

Articles of climate change and how the weather will impact the coming season are doing their rounds. Having accurate, reliable weather data is crucial to a producer to plan for the season.
