Western Cape

We converted a block of Sweet Joy grapes from micro-irrigation to NOVAP irrigation in January 2018. This block was planted during September 2017.

As with all our other installations, the water saving and general plant health continued as before. What was also clearly visible during our site visit on 27 Dec 2018, was the remarkable difference in weed growth between the NOVAP and micro-irrigated blocks. With a general water saving of minimum 50%, we are also recording better foliage growth on the NOVAP irrigated block.
