The Master Agronomist for 2015, Hendrik Kleynhans (left) of the Sikondo Irrigation Project in the Kavango receives his accolade from the previous Master Agronomist, pharmacist, aviator and farmer, Andre Compion.
Kleynhans claimed the title for his prowess in cultivating white maize under irrigation. Christof Brock (middle) of the Agronomic Board officiated at the awards ceremony. The award is given annually to a producer who shows a holistic approach to improving his white maize crop and is evaluated on various aspects such as financial management, staff management and the optimal use of fertilisers to improve the soil.
