GreenCape Sustainable Agriculture has released the 2023 Sustainable Agriculture Market Intelligence Report. Published in partnership with the Western Cape Department of Agriculture (WC DoA).

Sustainable agriculture investment opportunities highlighted in the 2023 MIR:

  • Renewable energy applications: While renewable energy alternatives such as solar PV systems, solar-powered irrigation systems and wind energy have remained popular, there are other technologies which could have substantial potential in agriculture, particularly solar drying technology.
  • Regenerative agriculture: Regenerative Agriculture (RA) is a holistic farm management concept that not only includes maintaining current soil health but also rehabilitating soil that has been degraded due to exploitative production practice.
  • Smart farming: Refers to the use of technology to better inform where and how resources are dispensed on a farm.
  • Circular agriculture: AD technology can provide a solution to a growing number of issues in the agricultural sector, in particular: energy security for both seasonal and continuous production; management of agricultural waste residues and wastewater; and replacement of chemical-based fertilisers with a nutrient-rich soil enhancer.
