NEW – Satellite-based spatial data to aid in irrigation

FruitLook ( is an open web portal that runs during the grape and deciduous fruit season of October to April in the Western Cape Province of South Africa.

The service is governmentally funded by the Western Cape Department of Agriculture to encourage efficient water use in agriculture and minimise losses due to surplus use. Via the website farmers have access to spatial data based on satellite information to analyse crop growth and water status over time and space.
