Suid-Afrika het die boere meer nodig as wat die boere die land nodig het”, aldus mnr. Pien Bester, 2010 se Graanprodusent van die Jaar. Bester was een van die sprekers by ’n Syngenta-geselligheid wat Saterdag (28 Mei) by Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria plaasgevind het. “Ja, julle kan na ander lande toe gaan, maar onthou net, ons eie land het ons nodig”, sê Bester. Hy meen die landbousektor se aandeel in die ekonomie word onderskat, maar “die landbou moet deel wees van die oplossings vir ons land”. Bester het ook ’n boodskap vir jong boere gehad. Hy’t hulle daaraan herinner dat hulle ’n toekoms in Suid-Afrika het, maar dat hulle op hul eie plase verantwoordelikheid moet neem. Bester sê boere moet ook onthou dat dit nie meer oor harder werk gaan nie, maar oor slimmer werk. “En plant in geloof; alles wat jy doen, moet in geloof wees”.

Mole crickets are highly specialized insects adapted for burrowing through soils. Some species prey on other insects and small invertebrates and other mole crickets feed on plants, primarily their roots. All species damage turf as they burrow just under the turf surface which separates turf roots from soil particles. This can cause the roots to dry rapidly, and lose their ability to take up water and nutrients. This results in crown and top dieback. Mole cricket damage often appears as trails of yellowing and wilting turf, general thinning, soil pushed up in small 3-5 cm mounds, or trails of sand or soil where the turf is thin or absent.

Insects can cause huge damage to newly sown crops. It can lead to crop yield loses as the entire crop can be destroyed or so badly damaged that the genetic potential of the crop is not realised.

Phosphites? Interest in phosphate fungicides and fertilizers for controlling certain turfgrass diseases, primarily Pythium blight is high in the turf industry. Phosphite (H2PO3-) is distinct from phosphate (HPO4-) in that it is not fully oxidized Leaf and Sheath Spot is an Increasing Problem on Ultradwarfs Leaf and sheath spot disease, caused by Rhizoctonia zeae, is increasing in severity on couchgrass and to a lesser extent on seashore paspalum.
