World-Class Crop Extravaganza Kicks Off13 February 2020

Christin Hunter, Marketing Communications Manager

The very popular Pannar Extravaganza will once again run across the country’s maize production areas, from February to April 2020. These events provide farmers with an excellent platform to see Pannar’s latest products first-hand and to interact, at a personal level, with the company’s experts and executives.

This year Pannar is actively supporting the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH). Designated by the Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO), IYPH 2020 is a momentous opportunity to raise global awareness on how protecting plant health can help end hunger, reduce poverty, protect the environment, and boost economic development. Farmers will hear more from Pannar’s team of experienced agronomists about how farmers can keep crops healthy, protecting the huge range of benefits plants provide to humans, to wildlife, to the environment and to our economy.

Attractions include:

Crop Tours: Plant health recommendations and detailed information about the unique features of the new products in Pannar’s portfolio:

  • White Maize: New hybrids with second generation stalk borer resistance. Managing plant health.
  • Yellow Maize: Exciting new early and medium early hybrids. Managing plant health.
  • Irrigated Maize: An unsurpassed ultra early white and yellow hybrid package. Managing pests and insects.
  • Sunflower: The industry-leading conventional and Clearfield® Plus hybrid package. Disease signs, symptoms and management tips.
  • Soybeans: Four exceptional new cultivars. Managing the diseases of economic importance.
  • Dry Beans: A new red speckled bean and a small white canning cultivar. Diseases and management.
  • Forage Crops: Lucerne, annual ryegrass, perennial ryegrass, forage cereal crops, Japanese radish, forage sorghum and Teff.
  • Make Your Best Silage Yet: Maintaining silage health, the fermentation process, inoculants and pit face management.
  • Wheat: An exceptional cultivar package and how to manage your wheat crop for top results.
  • Grain Sorghum: Hybrids for performance confidence.

Farmers can also partake in our much-loved Bonanza Reward Programme, whereby they place an order for a minimum amount of seed before 31 March 2020 and qualify for a fantastic Bonanza reward.

The main Extravaganza will be held at our Delmas research station on 26-27 February. Pannar is also holding similar events in the Free State at Kroonstad and in the North West Province at Biesiesvlei near Lichtenburg.
