August 2016 - Issue 47

It still amazes me how quickly time flies. I cannot believe that we are in the last quarter of the year already and that in a few short weeks harvest season will start.

The CAWC conservation week was ‘n huge success, with 200 attendees at the practical day in Caledon and 185 people attending the conference day at Elsenburg. The management team is thankful for the excellent response and we promise to build on this for next year. The 2017 practical day will be hosted in the Swartland.

On the opposite side of the mountain the results was much better in the long term trials at Tygerhoek and Riversdale. We hope and pray that the new season will be a normal one. In the coming season a wide variety of new trials will be introduced in both the Swartland and the southern Cape. We are currently finalising the dates for green tours as well as walkand-talks and will keep you informed. You can already book the 2nd and 3rd of August for the CAWC conference. The conference promises interesting speakers from across the sea, as well as locally. Please read the piece on decisions coming out of the management meeting during January.

Lawmakers backing hemp production try to separate it from pot in public’s eye

Marijuana’s cousin-without-a-high, industrial hemp, is a step closer to returning to Indiana.
