"A total potato crop of 2.6 million tonnes were produced and delivered 263 million 10kg pockets of potatoes. Our per capita consumption has doubled in the last decade." The South African potato industry employs between 50,000 to 60,000 temporary and permanent employees.

The recent surge in world grain and oilseed prices have started squeezing margins in intensive livestock feeding systems as they are major raw inputs in feed manufacturing.

It’s estimated that by 2022 more than one billion bottles of organic wine will be consumed annually. But just because a wine is labelled organic doesn’t mean it’s necessarily good for you and the environment. Here’s why you should rather be on the lookout for biodynamic wines.

Die tyd stap vinnig aan. Dit is nou byna 30 jaar sedert ek weg is uit Indwe, die dorpie in die NoordoosKaap waar ek grootgeword het. Oor die jare heen het die plekkie kwaai verander. Eers stadig. Soos die tennisklub wat al hoe meer agteruit gegaan het, tot die dag dat dit byna oornag weggedra is.

The South African market is currently in its off season as the orchards lie pruned and dormant, and the demand on the market is scant.

The CEF data shows an under-recovery for both 93 and 95 petrol, with prices expected to rise no more than a few cents per litre. Diesel drivers, meanwhile, can expect an increase for 0.05% and 0.005% at around 19 cents per litre.

It is no secret that food security, health and sustainability are concerns around the world. The knock-on effect to this is the need to address hunger, lifestyle diseases and climate change. One of the primary considerations of this discussion is centred around changing how agriculture and farming are being done.

Reducing food waste is one of the most important challenges of the food chain, which struggles to become increasingly more resilient and sustainable. Every year 1.3 billion tons of food are wasted in the world. This represents a huge economic loss and a considerable environmental impact due to the waste of water and greenhouse gas emissions this generates.
