Asparagus can be planted in a broad climate range; it can remain productive on the same land for 15 years and it’s pretty hardy for new farmers to explore and this week we share the ultimate guide to get started. 


Just like most of the world, South Africa's dairy industry has recently started putting pressure on producers to increase their butterfat production. Nelita Hildebrandt, KZN ruminant technical manager at Meadow Feeds, takes us through the complicated factors surrounding the production of milkfat, and what milk producers need to consider for their desired outcomes.


In our agripreneur 101 we meet the co-founder of Indigenous Dread, a cannabis infused skincare range, Bilqees Seria, affectionately known as Sister B.


Our book of the week is, Traction: Get a Grip on Your Business by Gino Wickman. And, our farmer tip of the week comes from Mbali Nyembe, agricultural advisor and agri specialist.
