Prof Cornie van Huyssteen, lecturer: Soil Science, University of the Free State/dosent: Grondkunde, Universiteit van die Vrystaat.

Summary/Opsomming


Soil is the most fundamental resource for the farmer, without which food and natural fibre cannot be produced. Furthermore, it is often also the most expensive single capital asset of the producer.

Grond is die mees essensiële hulpbron vir die produsent, waarsonder voedsel en natuurlike vesel nie geproduseer kan word nie. Verder is dit ook dikwels die produsent se duurste enkele kapitale bate.
