May 2018

Using the latest techniques of the Agricultural Research Council (ARC), the South African Weather Services (SAWS) and Dutch partners, we have now better planting and spraying advice for better yields, less water use, less use of pesticides and herbicides.

The website has been launched and the AgriCloud App is now available in the App store for Android, as well as via USSD.

AquaLinks is the technical operational coordinator of Rain4Africa subcontracted by HydroLogic Research BV since August 2017.
