Agriculture overview with Jacques Dupreez and George Mlilo

1. Nov./Dec. was spent planting

2. Activities should begin to happen in January

3. Rainfall hasn't been too profound yet. The very late rains could have both positive and negative effects on the crops.

4 First time planting groundnuts and hope to 'crack' it!

5. There are quite a few plots that unattended. Have the labour but need to contain the pressure i.e. weed, fertilise, water etc all at the same time.

6.Peanuts, sugarbeans, melons, baby marrow and carrots have germinated.

I'm hoping to catch up with Jacques and George and see how the crops have faired in January.
