We spoke to four youngsters who have found an accidental home in agriculture:
Tristan Dorfl ing (28) from Durbanville, Anika Kock (24) from Belville, Mthokozisi
Sishuba (29) from the Eastern Cape, and Chad van Wyk (27) from Cape Town.
Mtho has been appointed as an intern at Provar, while Tristan, Anika and Chad are
horticulture students all studying towards their master’s degree at Stellenbosch University
(SU). All four are currently working on an industry-funded project about fruit-type
adaptability and evaluation under the watchful, experienced eye of Dr Iwan Labuschagne
from Provar and Dr Esmé Louw from the Department of Horticultural Science, SU.
