    We recently celebrated International Women’s Day and for us as agriculturalists, the huge role of women in our precious industry immediately comes to mind. At the recent Women in Agricultural Conference in Lusaka, the rich, ongoing and indispensable impact of the beautiful gender was also celebrated and highlighted.

    Mieliepitte soeter as lekkers, spieëlblink eiervrugte, kanariegeel spanspekke, rooi geringde uie, mielies met drie koppe elk op presies dieselfde hoogte en sonneblomme wat grootbek lag… Die kultivardae van saadmaatskappye hierdie tyd van die jaar bly een van my hoogtepunte op die landboukalender. Een van die produkspesialiste kla bietjie by my dat die wortels op die […] More

    Dele van die Karoo het vir die eerste keer in vier jaar reën gehad en daar is orals foto’s van kinders en hondjies wat in die water speel. Op die sosiale media doen ’n video die rondte van ’n boer wat langs sy bakkie hardloop en sing uit vreugde omdat dit op sy plaas gereën […] More

    “Mag jou ooie almal lam en mag jou lammers almal ooie wees.” Dit was die goeie wens waarmee ՚n gesoute boer my begroet het toe ek so twee dekades gelede my eerste landbouradioprogram, Landboukorrels, aangebied het. Synde ՚n stadsjapie, het ek maar so ՚n rukkie gevat om te verstaan wat die man aan my probeer […] More

    As Africans, not all of us are lucky enough to farm close to the equator where rainwater is in abundance. The further we move away from the centre line of the earth, the bigger the risks and the tougher it becomes to plan our farming operations ahead, since rainfall can stay away for inconvenient long […] More

    “Ek gee om vir my goed; ek het hard gewerk daarvoor,” vertel ’n suksesvolle Vrystaatse boer. Na vyf- of sesduisend uur se werk lyk sy trekkers nog of hulle nuut op die handelaar se vloer staan. Nie eers stof word in ‘n kajuit toegelaat nie en sy mense weet, jy maak nie ’n trekker of […] More

    A number of massive agricultural acquisitions were seen over the past two years. Bayer bought Monsanto for $63 billion in a transaction completed in June this year.

    Hoeveel woorde lê in 24 jaar se tydskrifte? Hoeveel masjiene het ons al op ProAgri se bladsye laat leef en werk? Met hoeveel boere en verskaffers het ons al gesels sedert die eerste ProAgri in November 1994 trots en vars van die rolpers af die landbou-omgewing gegroet het? Dit is ’n onmoontlike taak om te […] More

    Small, frustrating steps. That is how farmers are fighting to sell their maize at a reasonable price.  Minister of Agriculture, Michael Katambo, recently imposed an administrative measure on the export of maize, but he emphasized that it is not a ban. The old argument was put forward – food security is paramount to free market […] More

    Blinkoog, oopgesig en met ’n vriendelike “Hallo Tannie” kom groet hulle wanneer ek op die plaas aankom om ’n artikel te skryf. Die boerekinders help op die plaas en speel buite en hulle gesigte straal selfvertroue en hoop uit. Wanneer ’n nuwe masjien op die plaas aankom, is dit hulle wat die opwinding wys wat […] More

    Agriculture in Zambia will soon experience the long, but inevitable chain effect of corruption. The disappearance of $4,3 million from the Social Cash Transfer Programme came as a shock to the entire country and the ripple effect is already in motion. While the investigation is going on, aid from the International Monetary Fund as well […] More
