Landbou Radio – 13 May 2021

SG Engineering Solutions is a company striving to further agriculture as it sees a gap whereby it can help to improve the industry. They saw such a gap in the poultry industry. In our program of 13 May, Dr Gavin Robinson tells us more about the Containerised Egg Layer Solution which aims to create an environment that is conducive to high quality, high yields of eggs. Dr. Dirk Troskie, Director of Business Planning, and Strategy at the Western Cape Dept of Agriculture give us feedback regarding the Drone pilots receiving their wings recently. He says drone technology is increasingly optimizing agriculture operations, increasing crop production, and monitoring crop growth. Rens Smit, Researcher at the Elsenburg Agricultural Training Institute was one of the students who received their wings. He tells us more about the training and the rules and regulations of the SA Civil Aviation Authority. John Rafferty, Independent Agricultural Consultant at Quantum Detection Solutions has some information regarding Quantum technology and how it could be used in agriculture.
