CHIPS is now in the Plaas Media stable! The first issue of 2021 offers a fresh new look and feel, but is packed with the same scientifically sound information that has characterised CHIPS up until now. In this issue readers can enjoy a feast of facts, from cultivar trials performed in Ceres and Oranjeville, to transformation success stories under the Potatoes SA (PSA) umbrella. Our main feature focuses on production in the Eastern Free State, more specifically the performance of potato fields under irrigation.
This issue also introduces a new series of articles in which we will be paying visit to the farms of PSA’s directors, to learn how they farm and how they view PSA’s contribution to the industry. In the first article in this series, Hanrie Greebe paid visit to Johan Holtzhausen, PSA’s director for the Gauteng, Mpumalanga and Loskop Valley production region.
