Gedaanteverwisseling van die Misstofgenootskap

Adam Mostert, uitvoerende hoof van FERTASA

Die Misstofvereniging van Suid-Afrika het 'n gedaanteverwisseling ondergaan. Sy vlerke is ook wyer oor Suider-Afrika gespan om landbou en volhoubare voedselsekerheid doeltreffender te dien.
Die genootskap sal voortaan bekend staan as die Fertilizer Association of Southern Africa(FERTASA).

FERTASA het ook 'n duidelike visie en missie om landbou te dien, naamlik:

VISIE Erkenning as die verteenwoordigende stem van die misstofbedryf met die stempel van goedkeuring vir verantwoordelike en volhoubare grondvrugbaarheid en plantvoeding in Suider-Afrika.

MISSIE: Om 'n geloofwaardige platform te skep vir die bevordering van verantwoordelike en volhoubare aanwending van misstowwe.

Die genootskap het ook verander van 'n artikel 21 maatskappy na 'n maatskappy sonder winsbejag. Vir die eerste keer is ook 'n direksie verkies wat die hoogste gesag van die genootskap is.

The Soil Fertility and Plant Nutrition Symposium was held on 11 August this year with excellent speakers addressing the theme of MULTI-FACETS OF PLANT NUTRITION.
