A group of researchers are working to establish how farmers can utilise water efficiently in the face of climate change, focusing on Limpopo.
Senior lecturer at Unisa's Graduate School of Business Leadership and associate at the Water Research Node, Dr Binganedzo Muchara, spoke to Joanne Joseph about the project.
So we are basically saying along the value chains of agriculture, where can we maximise the benefits of every drop of water that is utilised in the production system because we think agriculture has a role to play in the current crisis.— Binganedzo Muchara, Senior lecturer - Unisa's Graduate School of Business Leadership
In actual fact we have strategies that we normally train farmers. It could be from the use of technologies - what kind of irrigation systems you use or if you are rain fed, we can also talk of how can you condense the water during the rainy season that can actually help you post the rain season.— Binganedzo Muchara, Senior lecturer - Unisa's Graduate School of Business Leadership
