The importance of a day

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. One simple little step at a time. Every step, every move in its own time as the saying goes that there is a time for everything under the sun. For a farmer a time for planting and a time for harvesting. From planting to harvesting, a period of many hours and days. Hours and days which come with a lot of activities.
The success of a growing season comes down to what the farmer gets down to on a daily basis, consistently, constantly and continually. The successful execution of weekly and monthly plans depends directly on the success of daily plans. It is the day to day activities that make all the difference. Whilst we may not be able to see a bud popping out, a leaf shooting or a fur growing in the exact moment it does, there is a lot (even though invisible to the eye) that happens within a day. Whilst it may be easy to just brush off a single day as unimportant in light of the entire agricultural season, it is amazing what a single day will do in keeping up with targets. Significant yield reductions are known to be caused by a day’s delay. Prices of agricultural commodities can come crushing down or go skyrocketing in the space of a few hours.
It is therefore safe to say that every second matters in the business of farming and farmers should be sure to make full use of each and every day.
