Mellow, mild, September day,

calling children out to play.

Summer's on her way!

I’m as happy as a blade of grass swaying in the breeze, dear reader, because spring is upon us!
With winter’s footprints in the past, we can enjoy longer days, bluer skies and an abundance of vibrant colours & delicious fragrances as fields & gardens come alive.  I feel a new vigour to get up & going, and I’ve personally used the Aug/ Sep 2018 edition of the AGRIFOODSA Magazine to complete a few looming tasks with great ease.

In this 84-page issue we’ve featured some of the best product & service providers in Agri & Food that South Africa has to offer.  At the top of this list is our cover page-featured advertiser, Tubestone.  Offering world-class tyre, rim and tube brands, such as BKT, for agricultural and industrial tyres, Tubestone goes beyond what would be expected of a tyre distributor.
MD, Pieter Kruger, has created a Family feeling where great emphasis is placed on excellence in customer service and superior after-care is provided.
Theirs is an incredible success story and an example what can be done with hard work, determination, a loyal customer base, and exceptional management & employees.

Tubestone and thousands of other advertisers can be viewed on the AFSA Website (
