Nuwe kultivar vir besproeiing verras

Die ultravinnige, geel besproeiingsbaster P1197YHR asook P1197R en P1197 is die afgelope seisoen vir die eerste keer in Suid-Afrika aangeplant, as gevolg van die kultivar se indrukwekkende prestasies van tot 33 t/ha in opbrengskompetisies in die VSA.

Kultivarevaluasie doen voetwerk vir produsente

Die afgelope seisoen was seker een van die moeilikste koringseisoene wat hedendaagse produsente nog beleef het. Grafiek 1 wys waarom koringprodusente in die Oos-Vrystaat sulke lae opbrengste behaal het. Die reënval wat in die kritieke periode van koring se ontwikkeling moes voorkom, was weglaatbaar min (in totaal slegs sowat 3 mm). Alhoewel die Oos-Vrystaat tradisioneel […]

Kanolapaspoort – van produsent tot verbruiker

Die wêreld- en plaaslike voedselindustrie ervaar die ontwrigtende en verlammende effek van klimaatsverandering intens. Al hoe meer verwoestende brande breek uit en die wurggreep van droogte het ’n groot impak op voedselvoorrade. Voedselveiligheid is belangriker as ooit en dit is noodsaaklik om ’n land se voedselvoorsiening te beskerm. Daarom is dit nodig dat laasgenoemde deur […]

Op die vraag of ’n produsent bemesting kan verminder as hy of sy bewaringslandboupraktyke toepas, is die antwoord “ja”. Dit is egter nie ’n eenvoudige antwoord nie. Die ontwikkeling van en vordering met bewaringslandbou neem tyd en is nie ’n oornagsukses of soos die Engelsman sou sê ’n “silver bullet” nie. Om bogenoemde stelling toe […]

The good guys: Beneficial nematodes at the service of producers

Soil is alive! In a teaspoon of healthy soil there are more organisms than people on earth. Bacteria, fungi, algae, protozoa and nematodes, among others, interact with the surrounding environment that consists of minerals, water, air, nutrients and organic matter. This collective of living and non-living matter represents the soil ecosystem. Soil is dynamic! Energy […]
