The useful tips section presents an overview on a variety of topics that could help you on your farm or provide you with new ideas to propel your business. Topics under this section include how to implement energy efficiency, how to adopt to renewable energy, composting, conservation agriculture, climate change, water management and even aquaculture. Through reference to relevant case studies (and the occasional video clip) we aim to show you how other farmers reaped the benefit from these technologies and/or practices.

FAQ's on smart agriculture is exactly what the name implies. Frequently Asked Questions in the field of smart sustainable agriculture.


The purpose of this section is to put together a list of questions to help producers find easy answers without reading long articles. This section is a work in progress and feedback from the producers in the industry is key. In the "Your Input" section on the main tab producers, researchers or anyone in the industry can provide us with questions on smart agriculture and we would then go ahead and search for the answers.

This section is only focused on short questions and answers. In some circumstances contact details of the appropriate person can be provided. If you want a more in detail answer to your question please contact us or visit the "Projects & Research" tab.


As this portal can only present a broad overview of these opportunities, we encourage you to contact us at GreenCape for more information. Whilst we can’t claim to have all the answers to all the questions in the vast and complicated agricultural sector, we are certain we will be able to at least point you in the right direction.

If there is any other information related to smart agriculture that you feel we do not have listed here and would like us to provide it please visit the Your Input  section on the home page and provide us with your feedback or questions.
