July 2018 - Issue 67

Wel, die helfte van die jaar is verby en toestande is baie wisselwallig, maar soos die Enelsman sou sê: “This too shall pass”. Ek hoop dat julle nog ‘n vaste verwagting het vir die jaar end at 2018 nog besonders gaan uitdraai. Ons bly dankbaar vir die seëninge wat ons geniet. Onthou Romeine 8:35: “Wie kan ons van die liefde van Christus skei…”.

Geniet die Julie nuusbrief.

Hopkins Uys (Voorsitter BLWK)

Half of the year is gone and conditions are very different across the province, but as the saying goes: ”This too shall pass”. My hope is that you still have a solid expectation for the end of the year and that 2018 will still deliver something special. We are thankful for all the blessings we have. Remember Romanss 8:35: “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?...”

Enjoy the July newsletter.

Boer volgens jou Ritme

Op ons toer na Reitz se herlewings landboudag in Maart het ons interessante en uiteenlopende boerderye besoek. Ek het besef dat ons almal as boere het verskillende uitdagings, unieke omstandighede en diverse persoonlikhede. Maar ons neig almal na volhoubare voedsel produksie. Ek hoop hierdie maand se nuusbrief inspireer jou weer opnuut om voluit te boer volgens jou unieke ritme in jou omstandighede na jou doel. Onthou om in te skryf vir ons jaarlikse bewaringslandbou konferensie op 7 en 8 Augustus 2018.

Dankie vir jou deelname in bewarings boerdery.

Farm to your own rhythm

We visited really interesting and variable farms during our tour to the Reitz regenerative agriculture conference. I realised that we as famers differ in our challenges, unique surroundings and diverse personalities, but we all strive towards sustainability in our farming. I hope that the June newsletter inspires you anew to farm to your own unique rhythm. Remember to join us for our annual conference on the 7th and 8th of August 2018.

Thank you again for being a part of conservation agriculture. Kind regards

May 2018 - Issue 65

Hallo Almal
Hierdie afgelope maand was baie wisselwallig wat reënval aanbetref. Dele van die
Swartland het goeie buie ontvang, terwyl groot dele van die suidkaap nog droog
is. Die Langgewensproewe asook die nuwe Hopefield proef het baie goed ontkiem.
Op Riversdal se wisselbouproef het baie van die gewasse begin opkom na 1.1mm
reën en ‘n klein bietjie ondergrond vog, maar kort nou dringend opvolg reën.
Dieselfde geld vir ons proef in die Napky area tussen Swellendam en Malagas. Ons
vertrou dat die reën sal kom.
Ons wil julle ook net julle aandag vestig op vanjaar se BLWk konferensie wat in
Augustus plaasvind. Ongelukkig sal die lesinsdag nie weer by Elsenburg kan
plaasvind nie en is ons in die proses om ‘n geskikte plek te soek. Die praktiese dag
gaan plaasvind op Tygerhoek Navorsingsplaas by Riviersonderend en beloof om
baie interessante besoekpunte te hê.
Groete van huis tot huis


Hallo Everybody
Rainfall in the last month was very scattered and some areas in the Swartland
received good showers, while other areas and the southern Cape has been dry. The
trials at Langgewens as well as the new trial at Hopefield has germinated well. The
trials at Riversdale and in the Napky, between Swellendam and Malagas, has had
extremely little rain since planting. Planting at Riversdale was done on a little bit of
stored moisture and has received 1.1mm since then. The Napky trial received about
4mm. At both sites some of the crops has emerged. We trust that the rain will fall.
We would also like to remind you all about our CAWC conference in August.
Unfortunately the day of lectures will not be held at Elsenburg and we are therefore
looking for a new venue. The practical day will be held at Tygerhoek Research Farm
near Riviersonderend. Several interesting trials will be visisted during the day.
Kind regards
