15 May Anievaal Boerdery
Anievaal Boerdery produces maize on about 1 400ha by making use of extreme precision farming methods as well as cover crops to improve soil health. As a result, the business saved over R1 million in fertiliser costs during the past year, as the precision measurement of soil nutrients indicated that less fertiliser was needed due to ever improving soil health. The visit will look at how the farming business took the slow journey towards precision farming methods and soil health.
