Agriculture is popular in the North West Province but young people are not in full participation. But that is slowly changing as the Department of Rural, Environment, Agricultural Development is challenging and motivating young people to take part in agricultural activities. Today, young people were honored at the 2018 Youth in Agriculture Awards. The 2018 Bokone Bophirima Youth in Agriculture Overall Award winner, ThabaKwena Projects (PTY) LTD Broiler Production will be representing the province on Friday at the Youth in Agriculutre, Forestry and Fisheries (#YAFF) Awards which aim to increase participation, create a platform for networking amoung roleplayers in the sectors and acknowledge excellence in the industry.
