17 Aug Profitability the prerequisite for sustainable agricultural production
Fanie Brink, an independent agricultural economist, has delivered a paper on sustainability of agricultural production at the Annual Women in Agriculture and Agro-processing Summit in Centurion, Pretoria. He says: “The single most important factor that determines the sustainability of agricultural production to provide food security to any country is the fact that it can only be achievable if the production of food is profitable. This is and should be the main objective of the agricultural industry.”
He said this fact is also true in the processing and value-adding to agricultural products because there is no other way to achieve this objective that can improve the lives and livelihoods of all the people in the world.
