Once again enjoy a treasure of knowledge in the May 2019 edition of FarmBiz. In this edition we look at agricultural value chains in a tight economy.

Look forward to articles on:
  • Research on swine nutrition and antimicrobial resistance.
  • Trends in apple and pear production in South Africa.
  • Brazilian equipment report.
  • Current state of the wool and mohair market.
  • Market overview of edible oils.
  • HR management on farms.
  • Legal issues.
  • Labour issues.
  • And much more!

Also look forward to an in-depth discussion on food preservation techniques in the FarmLink section. There are also some recipes to try at home in the Farm Fare section, which also focuses on food preservation.
