    Cash is king, but our small-scale maize farmers are, in a strange way, a victim of that and it must stop. In a normal, healthy society where the free market and demand and supply dictate our behaviour, it is genuinely delightful for a farmer if his market can walk up to his door and offer […] More

    Ek haal vandag my hoed af uit respek vir ons boere wat deur hierdie hele tyd voortgegaan het met produksie en maniere gevind het om produkte by die markte en winkels af te lewer. Ek haal my hoed af vir die res van die voedselwaardeketting wat daarin geslaag het om die rakke in die winkels […] More

    Net die tyd sal leer of ons in ‘n mediese krisis of in ‘n ekonomiese krisis is. Internasionaal is daar ‘n paar politieke leiers en gesaghebbende waarnemers wat meen dat die sluiting van ondernemings (tydelik of permanent) en die verlies aan inkomste as gevolg van die wêreldwye staat van inperking tot meer sterftes kan lei […] More

    Africa’s people need infrastructure as much as they need oxygen. Even today, with our modern technology, many people are literally dying because food, medicine and essential lifesustaining products cannot reach them in time.

    We can finally kick off a new year. The after effects of the 2019 Southern African drought will remain for a long time and will stay in our memories. We can hope that 2020 will set us a better table to eat from. Access to cash for Zambian smallholder dairy farmers is one of the […] More

    Dit is ’n nasionale ramp. Geen veilings word toegelaat nie as gevolg van bek-en-klouseer. Veilings vorm steeds die ruggraat van ons veeverhandelingsbedryf en die nasionale verbod op vei lings gaan nie net veeboere nie, maar almal wat iets met die vleiswaardeketting te doen het, hard slaan. Dit sluit verbruikers in. Die uitbreek en verspreiding van […] More

    What can agriculture do for Zimbabwe in these dark days? We can bank on the idea that since food is one of the basic human needs, there will always be scope for food production, no matter the scale or circumstances. Let’s discuss a few scenarios.

    The Botswana elections came and went without a stint of unrest. The Batswana should really be proud of the example they set to the rest of the continent. The BDP (Botswana Democratic Party) achieved a runaway victory, with two thirds of the seats in their pocket. This achievement, which was even bigger than in the […] More

    ’n Hartroerende brief oor die uitmergelende droogte geskryf deur ’n boervrou van Boesmanland het in die sosiale media verskyn. Ek haal ’n paar sinne uit haar brief aan: “Vandag waai die wind weer in die Boesmanland. Nie ’n vars bries nie, maar ’n warm, stowwerige wind. En ek is moeg. Moeg vir die stof en […] More

    Die eerste digitale elektroniese armhorlosie met syfertjies in plaas van ՚n gesiggie het al in 1970 verskyn. Almal het gedink dit is die einde van gesiggiehorlosies. Met ons reis op die MSC Musica was dit vir my amusant om te sien dat al die pragtige, duur horlosies wat daar te koop aangebied is, die tyd […] More
