Anysbos is a wine, olive oil and goat farm in the picturesque region of Botriver in the Western Cape of South Africa, and has been an Oasis-Agri customer since 2015.
When Francis visited the farm in 2019 the farm manager mentioned that he had a grove that had produced no olives the previous year, and that he was planning on taking the trees out and replanting.
This would have been prohibitively expensive, so Francis suggested that a treatment plan that included Oasis 88 and a micro-nutrient blend could rejuvenate the soil and bring the grove back to life.
Quintus agreed it was worth a shot, and after an analysis of the soil samples which revealed a salinity issue, a treatment plan was devised and applied at the start of the 2020 season.
This treatment plan delivered in a bumper crop of nine tons per hectare in 2020 and four tons in 2021. (It is common for olives grove output to vary from year to year)
Anysbos now uses Oasis 88 and micronutrients across all olive groves, and a neighbouring farm called Gabrielskloof has also engaged Oasis-Agri.
