Welcome to the first issue of Harvest SA for 2019. It seems that time moves at a different speed nowadays: barely has one adjusted to the latest baffling revelation in the news than another comes along, only to be supplanted in its turn.

From the latest shenanigans in Washington or Caracas to the freshest twists and turns of the Zondo Commission, it’s impossible to keep up with every development. As professionals, though, what we can keep up with are the latest developments in our field. When it comes to technology, especially, growers in southern Africa have a plethora of tools to help them produce the best. In this issue, the spotlight falls on citrus: from packing and pruning to spraying and developing new cultivars, it’s all happening here. At the same time, on the policy level, it’s essential that every sector has a voice to make itself heard above the noise everywhere it counts. The Citrus Growers Association has been doing just that on behalf of South Africa’s citrus producers for years: don’t miss CEO Justin Chadwick’s message inside this issue. It’s a message that is sure to resonate with all farmers, not only those who grow citrus.
