In its quest to enrich the lives of farmers, consumers and advance progress, PANNAR SEED made a commitment to provide hybrid maize seed to the value of more than R15m to various projects across South Africa.
This seed will provide second generation stalk borer resistance over an area of 9 000 hectares, resulting in significant productivity gains.
The project was launched in the eastern Cape in April. Nick Goble Business Manager of PANNAR emphasised PANNAR’s partnership with farmers and pride in being able to supply first-rate hybrid seed with the latest trait technology to the project. “We need to grow yields and break the cycle of relatively low yields in Africa to ensure food security for future generations,” he said. PANNAR is committed to:
Farmers gratitude expressed for PANNAR’s seed and technical support was overwhelming as well as the praise for the performance of PANNAR’s products on their fields this season. The farmers were convinced that the partnership between PANNAR and their farmer groups would produce greater results going forward in terms of productivity enhancement and enrichment of their business and lives. Enthusiasm was also expressed for the broad range of products PANNAR offers to farming communities.
