The state of the economy: onwards and upwards

  • 2022-05-17

  • 09:00 AM
  • |
  • Nampo Park, Donkerhoek Hall

The world economy is under pressure, and South Africa is not immune to the impact. Input costs are rising, consumer spending is cautious and general turmoil in world markets contributes to a sense of trepidation. Facilitator, Theo Vorster, will talk to renowned economic experts about the current state of affairs, where the opportunities are, and what needs to be in place to move forward.

  • 11:00 AM

  • Nampo Park, Donkerhoek Hall

Modern chemistry contributed to the agricultural evolution of the past century, but the responsible use of agri-chemicals should be top of mind for all producers, in creating a sustainable management strategy. Facilitator, Theo Vorster will talk to industry representatives about public perceptions of chemical use; the role of agri-chemicals in environmental protection and sustainability; and oversight in the industry.

Better access: infrastructure & logistics

  • Nampo Park, Donkerhoek Hall

From deteriorating rural roads and rail infrastructure to bottlenecks at harbours, South Africa’s agricultural sector is negatively affected by a lack of investment in efficient logistics. Production areas are often far from the main consumers and export markets, and a breakdown in logistics can have dire consequences for producers. Facilitator, Theo Vorster, will ask industry experts about the impact of logistics on the sector and what can be done to overcome this challenge.

Let’s fix it: the regeneration of rural communities

  • 2022-05-18
  • |
  • 11:00 AM
  • |
  • Nampo Park, Donkerhoek Hall

Consolidation of farming enterprises coupled with higher mechanisation is leading to fewer job opportunities in rural towns and rapid urbanisation. This leaves many rural areas in a state of disrepair because of a shrinking economic base and dwindling economically active population. Facilitator Theo Vorster will talk to experts about some community projects that made a difference, as well as how these projects can set an example for others to follow.

Diversification and the integration of livestock

  • 2022-05-19

  • 09:00 AM
  • |
  • Nampo Park, Donkerhoek Hall

Rising input costs will force some grain producers to look at diversifying their operations by introducing livestock. Integrating livestock into a grain business can add value to lower potential farmlands and improve overall cashflow. Facilitator, Theo Voster will talk to livestock specialists about the challenges, rewards and practical planning involved in this kind of diversification.

  • 11:00 AM

  • Nampo Park, Donkerhoek Hall

Nearly all technologies are going digital, and data is said to be the commodity of the future. But what happens with the terabytes of data created by the thousands of sensors across your farm every day? And who owns this data? Facilitator, Theo Vorster will talk to data and technology specialists about managing and using data to improve efficiencies and decision making on the modern farm.

The future of agriculture: a new generation

  • 2022-05-20
  • |
  • 09:00 AM
  • |
  • Nampo Park, Donkerhoek Hall

A country’s future lies with its youth, and with an aging agricultural sector, newcomers to the industry are sorely needed. Facilitator, Wandile Sihlobo, will ask experts in this field about the youth’s perception of agriculture, hurdles they must overcome and the future prospects of agriculture as a career choice.
