We are also joined by FarmSol farming mentor Barry Nel. In our farmer development segment, he shares some fatherly advice to a new generation of farmers.
And then, in celebration of Women’s Month, we meet this week’s #SoilSista, powered by Corteva Agriscience and Food For Mzansi. You simply have to hear how Gauteng farmer Renate Griessel managed to break the proverbial glass ceiling.
