Take account of 2020 and live the change in 2021

Good day to all from a very hot Johannesburg. Can you believe that the year 2020 is rushing towards an end? We have seen a year full of trials and tribulations.

We are also amidst the amazing harvest being taken off the fields in the Western Cape and summer crops being planted at the moment up north. At this stage we have received some wide spread rainfall to get all the farmers excited and hopeful to conclude a successful planting season. The eastern regions have had a good month of planting thus far with the end of their planting window coming closer. The North West and central Free State have had a few fast and furious storms to get their planting season only going now.

GOSA wishes to congratulate the industry on staying steadfast throughout this year, handling a huge harvest, facilitating new business and initiatives in very challenging times. This is also the time of year to look back and be thankful – thankful for being safe in a pandemic, thankful for provision, thankful for opportunities to grow in business and in relationships.

It is our special wish to you, our members, associated industries and role-players to come together in unity for our cause to enhance knowledge, know-how and opportunities inside the GOSA platform. With this unity in mind we can face 2021 and whatever it may bring. At GOSA the door is open for discussion, growth and interaction to create the needed relationships.

With relationships come joyful times, hard work and also sad times. It is especially sad when GOSA have to say goodbye to members who left such deep footprints in the industry. A special word of gratitude goes out to the late Mike Thompson and late Chris Pretorius. Thank you for so many years of being GOSA ambassadors with endless knowledge in field, application and time forged relationships. We will miss you.

As we go into this festive season, may we take account of 2020 and live the change in 2021. GOSA wishes all a Blessed Christmas full of love and time with the family. Please be safe and mindful of the pandemic and the frustrations it brings. This too shall pass; like all the others did.

Looking at 2021, we are marching on in planning another great GOSA Annual Symposium in Mossel Bay. Please take note of published symposium related updates.

GOSA regards
