In this week’s episode of Farmer’s Inside Track…How to start an olive farm that can crack export markets! Olives are versatile, and besides exporting the fruit, you can make a variety of value-added products like olive oil, olive tapenade, or even olive skincare products! 

Animal nutrition powered by…Voermol Feeds is back. Dr Francois van de Vyver unpacks the correct nutrition usage to ensure optimal livestock production. Plus, we give away another R1 000 Voermol product voucher to a lucky listener…

Covid-19 has compelled businesses across all spheres to adapt and innovate to survive and thrive. In our farmer development segment, FarmSol boss Aron Kole details how they’ve adjusted their strategies. 

After just two years, an Afrivet dip tank project has empowered more than seven thousand small-scale farmers in primary animal health care. Afrivet director, Vuyo Makapela, explains the significance of this project.

We also meet Alisha Kalicharan, a Gauteng poultry farmer. She now wears the crown as this week’s Soil Sista, powered by Food For Mzansi and Corteva Agriscience.

Our book of the week, as selected by our listeners, is This Farming Life by Tim Saunders. And our farmer tip of the week comes from Limpopo livestock farmer Michael Makwela.
