Every farmer knows that without his people, he is nothing. And people, in this context, include employees. From your labourers to the farm manager and office staff – every person plays a pivotal role in the farming enterprise and has a lesser or greater influence on the enterprise’s profitability. But what must producers have in place to ensure a healthy job environment? In this issue experts talk to us about contracts, labour laws and other important aspects which every farm employer should be aware of.
