In this week’s episode of Farmer’s Inside Track…How to farm with sub-tropical fruits in Mzansi! Sub-tropical fruits like avocados, mangos and litchis are always in high demand when they’re in season. 

Work Accident Support with Stephen Pietersen” is back! This week, we discuss the compensation for occupational injuries and diseases act, with a specific focus on the benefits payable in terms of this act.

FarmSol boss Aron Kole believes food security and alleviating poverty is our collective responsibility. In our farmer development segment, he unpacks how we can change our thinking about this.

We catch up with two Western Cape buddies, FG Adriaanse and JD Naudé. They have turned a real-life farm problem into an African tech giant. Their company, Adagin Technologies, already serve more than 100 clients across the continent. 

We also meet Disebo Makatsa, a dairy farmer from Welkom in the Free State. 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 farmers, is “The hard thing about hard things: building a business when there are no easy answers” by Ben Horowitz. 

And our farmer tip of the week comes from Lusanda Mkhwanazi, a third year agricultural student at Cedara Agricultural College in KwaZulu-Natal.
