Work History

Cedara College
I worked at Cedara for 15 years in the Agronomy Department. During this time period, I did research and trial work on a variety of crops.
• Wheat trials on a farm in Winterton and Bergville. Cultivar trials, seed dressing trials against the Take-All disease and a 2 year crop rotation trial to combat Take-All. I did wheat trials for about 6 years.
• Maize cultivar trials at Cedara and Winterton and a 2 year maize planting time trial in Bergville.
• Dry-bean cultivar trials at Cedara as well as fungicide spraying trials on dry-beans to combat rust and other diseases and tested 15 different chemicals.
• Variety of Lupine trials, both winter and summer. I selected the best broadleaf Lupine variety that is still available in SA, named Ced 6150.
• The most research I did was on Soy-beans. For many years I planted the Soybean National trial at Cedara and for some years at Winterton. I did a Sclerotinia fungicide trial in Winterton and Sclerotinia seed dressing trials. Planting date trials at Cedara for 2 years to determine the effect thereof on rust and yield. A 3 year cultivar X row spacing X seedling rate trial with 3 cultivars at Cedara. 4 seeding rates and 3 row spacings namely 22, 45 and 90 cm. Rust fungicide trails.
During the years at Cedara, I was involved in numerous Farmer's days, both at Cedara and off station, on farms and small scale farmers. Every year I presented talks on research done and assisted with the crops courses held at Cedara. I presented talks on Soy-bean and Lupine production. I worked in the same passage as the founders of No-Till in Kwa-Zulu Natal, Dr John Mallet and Bill Berry. Attending several No-Till days and working with the organizers, gave me a good working knowledge of No-Till production.
Protein Research Foundation
The PRF became aware of the work I was doing at Cedara. After some talks with the Management at Cedara, it was decided to transfer me to them, while based at Cedara. I then focused more on Soy-beans,...
