NLBR gryp in met gewassesyfers

Belanghebbendes in die graan- en oliesaadbedryf sal teen volgende maand weet hoe die plaaslike vraag-en-aanbodsituasie vir dié bedrywe lyk.

’n Vraag-en-aanbodkomitee vir grane en oliesade is op 27 Julie in die lewe geroep. Die Nasionale Landboubemarkingsraad (NLBR) sal in beheer van dié komitee wees wat uit onafhanklike kundiges en amptenare van die Departement van Landbou, Bosbou en Vissery sal bestaan.

Dit is die eerste keer sedert die ontbinding van die landboubeheerrade dat die Regering en die private sektor op dié manier saamwerk om volledige inligting oor die vraag-en-aanbodvlak van grane en oliesade te bekom en vroegtydig aan belanghebbendes oor te dra.

Laagste rentekoers in vier dekades

Of ’n boer nou ’n nuwe trekker begeer of van skuld ontslae wil raak - nóú is die tyd.

Dit volg ná me. Gill Marcus, president van die Reserwebank, aangekondig het dat die repokoers op 20 Julie met 50 basispunte tot 5% verlaag is.

Die prima-uitleenkoers is nou die laagste in bykans 40 jaar.

Me. Lindie Stroebel, hoofekonoom van die Landboubesigheidskamer (Agbiz), sê die doel van die verlaging is om die ekonomie in geheel ’n hupstoot te gee. “Dit behoort mense met skuld die geleentheid te bied om ’n bietjie asem te skep. Ander sal weer skuld maak, wat tot nuwe ekonomiese bedrywighede kan lei.”
