This week in South African agriculture

Agri SA labour specialist Lebohang Sethusha unpacks the issues around this pay disparity between women and men in the agricultural industry. 

Our book of the week… “Eat that frog” by Brian Tracy. If you’ve ever felt like theirs just never enough time for everything on your “to-do” list then this productivity book is a must read! 

And our farmer tip of the week comes from Philip Kgapane. He runs a vegetable farm in Mafarafara Village under the Sekhukhune District in Limpopo.
