2022 a new year, a year of hope …
A new year has arrived. Our way of thinking has changed a lot throughout the past two years. This year, I believe, is a year of hope; hope to restore your fields, to build your herd and recover financially. That is what farmers are currently experiencing after the welcome rains that broke the devastating drought. Farmers have planted their summer crops and are looking forward to a good harvest this season.
A few months ago, the ProAgri team visited several farmers in Namibia. Livestock is one of Namibia’s main agricultural export products, despite the country being very arid. The challenge is to produce enough feed for the livestock industry to survive, but where there is a will, there is a way. Many farmers have opted for irrigation solutions to feed their livestock.
This edition is jam-packed with newsworthy articles from all three countries. We also have exciting news from Valtrac, Stafix and Valley for our readers. Apart from the regular articles with information on the best practices for various branches of farming, in this edition we shall also look at erosion control, sheep and poultry farming as well as fighting climate change and feeding farmers with agroforestry.
We are committed to keep you up to date with the latest trends, technologies and best practices in livestock, crop production, mechanisation, and resource management.
