The COVID-19 outbreak is an unpreceded occurrence, and the global pandemic has, in a short space of time, impacted organisations in countless ways. We’re living through a year that is uncharted, and things around us are changing extremely fast.

Following the stringent measures implemented by the South African Presidency, which included prohibiting gatherings om more than 100 people, Grain SA has been monitoring the developments of COVID-19 and under the guidance and recommendations of the World Health Organization, the Presidency of South Africa and the Department of Health, have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 NAMPO Harvest Day which was scheduled to take place from 12-15 May 2020 at NAMPO Park, just outside Bothaville.

The 2020 NAMPO Harvest Day will be postponed to 11-14 August 2020, given that Government policies and guidelines permit the postponed date. Grain SA will evaluate and review the date by the end of June 2020 if necessitated by governmental regulations.
