Dawie Rothmann – from Rothmann Boerdery in Brits (North-West) can be seen here in one of his many Optima cabbage fields. Dawie is an excellent vegetable farmer, growing not only cabbages but tomatoes, carrots, peppers, and onions (to name only a few).

Because of his hard work and dedication, Dawie was also awarded the Young Farmer (North West) Award last year. He likes growing Optima in summer, not only because of its resistance to blackrot, but also because of its excellent uniformity and field holding ability. Thank you for making our cabbage varieties look this good Dawie – we here at Sakata are very proud of you and what you’ve achieved.
