The candidate must be 40 years of age or younger on the day on which entries for the competition close (obtain closing date for 2020 from your Provincial Agricultural Union).
Because the farmer is judged on his/her management philosophy as well as the technical manner in which it is applied/executed, the enterprise size and compilation of the candidate are not crucial, i.e. the game/livestock farmer, grain/fruit/wine farmer or mixed farmer have the same chance of winning the competition.
The candidate may farm on his/her own or in partnership with others. In the latter case, the candidate must have specific allocated responsibilities and decision-making authority on which he/she will be judged. However, in the latter case, the candidate must be involved in the application of management functions (planning, implementation and control) in all fields (production, marketing, finance & labour management), even though the candidate may only be involved in some of the farm’s enterprises. Candidates may only enter the competition as individuals (e.g. brothers are not allowed to enter as a team, but they may enter as individuals and compete against each other for the title).
The candidate must have been a fully paid-up member of his/her provincial agricultural union (Agri-SA) for at least one year on the closing date for entries.
National winners may not enter the competition again.
The decision of the panel of judges is final and no reasons or comments will be given to candidates.
