AGRI-TECH industry leaders Aerobotics, in conjunction with Suzuki, will host its inaugural Golf Tour at the St Francis Bay Golf Course on Thursday, September 12 - marking the last day of the tournament.

Over 250 of South Africa’s most influential tree crop farmers will take part in the nationwide event: Birdy in the Sky Golf Tour, which plays on the aerial imagery that their farm management software depends on.

The tournament - presented for their Agri-partners and farmers in partnership with King Price, Nedbank, AgriSA and Landbouweekblad - teed off at the Pearl Valley Golf Club in Paarl on Tuesday, September 3, followed by a golf day at the Legends Golf Club in Tzaneen on Friday, September 8.

The third golf day took to the greens at the Mbombela Golf Club in Nelspruit on Monday, September 9, while the fourth event took place at the Zimbali Golf Estate in Durban on Tuesday, September 10 and end off at the St Francis Bay Golf Course on Thursday, September 12.

The event will be a relaxed and fun day with a good dose of healthy competition where guests will meet, network, compete and dine with other farmers and role players in the agriculture space.

The agenda will include a tee off, drone demonstration, drinks and canapés, guests speakers, a sponsor address, prize giving and a gala dinner.

This is not the first time Aerobotics has hosted a nationwide event series for its farmers and partners. In 2018 they hosted an event called The Future of Farming, which took place at eleven venues in South Africa simultaneously.

The company launched multiple AI innovations for farming on location in Franschhoek and live-streamed the presentations to each of the other venues. Then as part of their expansion in the US market, they partnered with agri-tech industry giants to host seven events across the country for their Trees & Tech roadshow.

  • Based in Cape Town, Aerobotics was co-founded by James Paterson (CEO) and Benji Meltzer (CTO) and uses drone and satellite imagery to offer its global client base of farmers early-stage pest and disease detection.
