New research by a recent PhD graduate of Stellenbosch University has shed light on what olive tree farmers can do to curb olive trunk diseases in their orchards. Plaas TV recently visited dr Meagan van Dyk in the Western Cape to talk about this issue. We also catch some tips on how to prune trees when humidity levels are low and how to apply wound protection within the first week after pruning.

We then chat to Lianne Jones from the PMA about the incredible role that women play in agriculture.
