Erasmus says in the 22 March 2019 issue of Farmer’s Weekly in the news section there is a full report on the recent Grain SA congress at Bothaville in the Free State. This entails information about the new soybean levy that has come into effect and how it will shape the future of the industry in South Africa.
The magazine also reports on the location differential applicable to wheat farmers, which was discussed at the congress. Another main story includes the impact which the electricity price increase will have on farmers and the whole food value chain.
