Harvest Time Investments delivers AFGRI’s farmer training and development programme. With over 90 years of experience in the agricultural sector, AFGRI understands what it takes to be a successful farmer, and with this in mind, launched Harvest Time in 2012 to unlock the potential of farmers and their farms through training, development, and mentorship.
As part of the initiative, study groups and trial sites are used to demonstrate new technology such a precision farming. Mentors and agronomists are on hand to share practical information and knowledge and offer insight that comes from many years of experience.
However, the mentorship is arguably the most valuable component of all – by working directly with the emerging farmer throughout the process, AFGRI’s mentors, working with teams from GeoAgro, AFGRI’s precision farming division, and its agronomists, are able to assist the individual to enhance his/her yields. This puts the farmer in a good position to increase yields and grow more crops, ultimately helping him or her to become successful commercial farmers of tomorrow.
