DEKALB Create Conference 2019:

Farming for the future

DEKALB was extremely proud to be the hosts of our very first DEKALB Create Conference this year. The conference took place in Secunda on 5 February 2019 and at Nampo Park near Bothaville on 7 February 2019.

2019’s theme was specifically focussed on farming for the future in South Africa and aimed to address the challenges maize producers are currently facing. The DEKALB Create Conference provided an unparalleled opportunity for farmers to rub shoulders with industry leaders and to equip themselves with the necessary tools for the road ahead.

Speakers such as Prof Marcos Fava Neves, an international expert on global agri-business issues shared his insights with the audience, while Kyle Tom from Tom Farms travelling all the way from Indiana, America to speak about how digitising agriculture has the potential to be the next “disruptive technology”. Theo Vorster (Nation in Conversation and Sakegesprek met Theo Vorster) also acted as the facilitator at the event.

The conference also made provision for the ladies with a special Women’s Programme. Sinki Mlambo (presenter of My Matriekafskeid on VIA) acted as the guest speaker.
