Voorwoord

Hallo Almal

Die planters het begin loop. Die Swartland het paasnaweek reën gekry. Die wisselbou proewe se plantwerk het ook begin. Die Riversdal proefperseel is nog kurkdroog en ons sal eers middle Mei daar plant.

Tydens die Februarie BLWK toer asook tydens verlede jaar se konferensie het ons oorkondes uitghandig vir leiers in CA en ons het gedink dit sal goed wees om deel van die bewoording hier aan te haal om almal weer te herinner waarmee ons besig is.

Oorkondes is oorhandig aan Danie Slabbert, Izak Dreyer, Egon Zunckel, Johan Bouwer, Roland Kroon en Chris Roux.

“Erkenning vir die bydra tot die uitbou van Bewaringslandbou beginsels, die bevorsering van volhoubare gewas verbouing, gesonde grond en die versterkeing van die platteland ekonomie”.

Hi All

Almost everywhere in die Western Cape a planter or planters has been seen. The Swartland received some varying rain during Easter weekend. The crop rotation trials planting season has started. The Riversdale site is still bone dry and we expected to be planting there from middle May.

During the February CAWC tour and at last year’s conference we started recognizing leaders and initiators of CA around the country. We thought it important to include a part of the wording on the recognition in this issues intro just to remind us what we are busy with.

Recognition was given to Danie Slabbert, Izak Dreyer, Egon Zunckel, Johan Bouwer, Roland Kroon and Chris Roux.

“Recognition of contribution to the extension of Conservation Agriculture principles, the promotion of sustainable crop production, healthy soil and the strengthening of the rural economy”.
