Agri-Uur 4 Augustus Tommie Esterhuyse

#AgriSA: Die instelling van 'n reservistestelsel geniet die nodige dringendheid deur die polisie
Agri SA is hoopvol dat daar nie meer gesloer gaan word om die polisie se hersiende landelike beveiligingsstrategie, wat die reservistestelsel insluit, in werking te stel nie. Tommie Esterhuyse, voorsitter van Agri SA se Sentrum van Uitnemendheid vir landelike beveiliging, sê die reservistestelsel gaan tot gevolg hê dat gemeenskappe meer magte het tydens aanvalle op plase en kleinhoewes. Dié tonele sal beveilig kan word deur reserviste. Opleiding van reserviste gaan vir seker tot meer doeltreffende optrede bydrae. Dit kom nadat die polisie verlede week met die vrystelling van die nasionale misdaadstatistieke deur die minister van polisie, Bheki Cele, aangedui het dat die instelling van die reservistestelsel nou die nodige dringendheid geniet. OFM-nuus se Christal-Lize Muller het met Esterhuyse gepraat...

Agri-Uur 4 Augustus Roy Jankielsohn

Die DA in die Vrystaat beskou die LUR van landbou en landelike ontwikkeling in die Vrystaat, William Bulwane, se erkenning dat misdaad in landelike gebiede 'n ernstige probleem is, as 'n ligpunt. DA-LPW en leier van die amptelike opposisie in die Vrystaatse wetgewer, Roy Jankielsohn, sê Bulwane se erkenning daarvan is van groot belang, maar dit moet nie slegs by praat bly nie. Hulpbronne moet in dié verband in die Vrystaat beskikbaar gestel word. Bulwane het sy begroting van R712 miljoen verlede week virtueel in die wetgewer gelewer waarna die begrotingsdebat gevolg het. OFM-nuus se Christal-Lize Muller het met Jankielsohn gepraat...

(VIR DIE WEB: Hy sê Bulwane moet ook sy kollegas op nasionale vlak raadpleeg oor die situasie rondom onveilige toestande in landelike gebiede. Die regerins moet nou dringend sy nasionale landelike beveiligingsplan in werking stel, ook in die Vrystaat. Jankielsohn sê hy het dit in die begrotingsdebat aan Bulwane gestel, en die DA soek nou antwoorde rondom dit.

Rising Corona-infections might not impact planting season negatively
AND... As usual on a Tuesday, Wandile Sihlobo, Chief Economist at the Agricultural Business Chamber of South Africa, Agbiz, provides a weekly insert about the latest on the global as well as South African agricultural markets.

Here is Sihlobo....

(FOR THE WEB: The South African agricultural sector has thus far successfully harvested summer crops and horticulture with minimal interruptions from the pandemic. Farmers and agribusinesses had to, however, adjust their usual work processes to comply with health regulations and limit the spread of the virus. In about a month, the focus will shift to planting activity of 2020/21 summer grains, oil seeds and various horticulture products. This is at a time when the Covid-19 infection numbers are on the rise, with the Western Cape, Gauteng, Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal currently being the hot spots of the virus in South Africa. These provinces also account for 60% of South Africa’s agricultural output, which raises questions about whether the surge in infections could negatively impact the planting season.
