For this three-part series, film-makers Jörn and Tammo Gläser joined several different farmers and agricultural contractors for the season. The agricultural industry in South Africa is incredibly varied!
Farmers have to deal with major challenges and the different soil and weather conditions mean that not everywhere is conducive to productive arable farming. The focus of these independent films is on fieldwork with modern tractors and agricultural machinery from John Deere, Fendt, Claas and Case IH, amongst others. We’ll also be taking a look at local agricultural machinery manufacturers. Join us on our journey with our stunning footage of impressive landscapes and imposing fields! From forestry, to dairy production, maize and potato cultivation and even groundnut, sugar cane and cotton harvesting, this unique film project will shine a light on all the major agricultural topics in South Africa!
