Move with the times
Inventive producers again have the opportunity to demonstrate modified agricultural equipment. The purpose of the Boerepatente (Farmers’ patent) competition is to encourage producers with original ideas, to share the equipment that they built for special use or with a view of finding solutions
for problems they encountered on the farm. This will lead to general and greater efficiency and comfort on the farm.
Producers participating in the Farmers' Patents Competition presented during Grain SA's NAMPO Harvest Day (15-18 May 2018) can also collect R10,000 for their farmers' association or study group this year. Any paid-up member of a farmers' association or study group who enrolls a farm patent under categories A to D, will automatically form part of the judging for this additional prize.
Videos of patents, in any of the categories, will also be accepted as entry this year.
