In a serious competition the contestants have to work hard and are put under serious scrutiny to determine who the ultimate winner is. This is the approach Toyota and AgriSA take when they have to choose the best young farmers.

For years, Toyota South Africa Motors has sponsored two coveted awards in the Agriculture industry. The Agri SA Toyota Young Farmer of the Year and Toyota New Harvest of the Year awards were presented to the winners at a gala event held near Krugersdorp last night. Each winner drove away in a brand new Toyota Hilux. The vehicle is worth just under R400 000.
