From 16 to 19 May, local and international farmers as well as companies servicing the sector will gather in Bothaville in the Free State for the annual trade show. Nampo Harvest Day celebrated its 50th anniversary last year and is gaining in popularity amongst farmers to avail themselves of the opportunity to interact with experts in various agricultural fields and to benefit from their insights.

The series has grown in stature and importance with leading players in the industry and mainstream economy participating in the discussions.

These riveting subjects will be facilitated by an equally reputable line up of show hosts and guests such as Carte Blanche’s Derek Watts; 702 and CapeTalk’s Eusebius McKaiser; former Nation in Conversation guest anchor and media expert Jeremy Maggs; CEO of Galileo Capital, Theo Vorster; Money Talk host Bruce Whitfield; Nation in Conversation co-anchor Mpumelelo Mkhabela and Power FM’s personality Andile Khumalo, with former politician and current chairman of the In Transformation Initiative, Roelf Meyer, as a special guest.
Among the stakeholders featured and represented on this series will be representatives from industry thought leaders like AFGRI, Senwes, Monsanto, Engen, Nedbank and the Department of Agriculture.
This year’s production of Nation in Conversation at Nampo Harvest Day is made possible by the following partners: AFGRI, Engen, Grain SA, Monsanto, Nedbank and Senwes, in association with Hinterland and Imperial Isuzu.
