The Bottom Line


By Richard Winkfield


From 1985 to 2000, Richard Winkfield was Director at the Agricultural Research Trust (ART), a world-ranked private research facility in Zimbabwe. During this time he wrote a regular column for The Farmer, a weekly magazine for the agricultural sector, to promote ART’s research activities and to give technical news (excluded here) and topical information. These popular articles were often preceded by light-hearted descriptions and comments on life on ART Farm and in Zimbabwe before the devastating land-reform programme overwhelmed the country. This is a selection from the 750 articles in the series.


The book is available from Mike Clark at CFU Headquarters for US$ 25
