Saving water and speeding up growth

Saving water and speeding up growth

Delecta Fruit’s commitment to delivering premium fruit goes deeper than fruit texture, colour and sugar levels. Delecta is dedicated to the overall wellbeing of our agricultural landscape, considering economic, social and environmental factors. For this reason, and in light of the ongoing water shortage in South Africa, we encourage our producers to implement suitable strategies to save water and energy where possible.

One such strategy is the Tree Hog micro-irrigation drip system which was recently installed by one of our pome and stone fruit producers in the Ceres valley, Elandsrivier Farming.

The brainchild of local Robertson farmer, Louise Loubser, Tree Hog allows micro-sprinkler users to significantly cut water and energy use in orchards.
