Landbou Radio – 3 May 2021

Organic farming is a technique that involves the use of biological materials and avoids the use of synthetic substances to cultivate plants and rearing animals in natural ways.

In our program of 3 May, Nico Uys, Sales support Specialist at AgroOrganics tells us more about the benefits of organic farming, how soil health is tested and the roll of cover crops in organic farming.

Gerhard Smit, Commercial Manager at Rijk Zwaan, has some information about the production of Sweet Palermo Peppers. These peppers vary in colour, are tasty, sweet, crunchier than any other peppers and they are packed with nutrients.

Bennie Avenant, Technical Consultant of Ever, a leading company in the production of high-quality winemaking biotechnologies and processing aids, tells us more about their core business and the Platinum Partnership with Sauvignon Blanc SA.

Hennie Bruwer, CEO of Cotton SA, gives us an update on the latest crop estimate. He also has some information on the development and implementation of new technologies and the road forward.
