SugarBytes became TropicalBytes in June 2019 and is now bringing you articles on a range of crops sustainable in our climate, starting with Macadamias.


Advertising in TropicalBytes works! I know this because I get constant feedback from farmers about how much they enjoy reading the articles and implementing the advice – even if they don’t learn anything from a particular article, they thoroughly enjoy breaking the isolation that often comes with farming and hearing about what’s happening in the industry. It’ll be the hottest topic at the next braai so they have to keep up to date by reading the latest TropicalBytes articles.

Here are two of the latest endorsements, both received in Jan 2020:

“Just wanted to say thanks for the links to your magazine. I think it is quickly becoming the best Agric publication available. I really look forward to reading your articles. Do you have an archive online to read from Issue 1 again?” – One of the VERY best and most respected top farmers in the country, based in Amatikulu.

“Wow, your January 2020 edition is amazing. You have covered the cultivars in depth. I have shared the TropicalBytes website with others in the macadamia industry. There is so much still to learn and to share any knowledge we have with the other growers.Well done on a wonderful incentive!!!” – Entomology expert, Nelspruit.

All articles will be well-researched and full of rich information from a diversity of sources. The aim: to deliver quality content that fulfills our purpose of  Equipping farmers for excellence and success by sharing knowledge and expertise. The advances in the industry are happening, not only on the farms, at a grass-roots level, but also on a more complex and strategic level, in the industry at large. We will expose the farmers to that, in a non-threatening, comprehensive way.
