While working for a large seed company, I once had a chat with one of the directors, a financial fundi who contributed to steering the company in the right direction. He noted that many students who finished university with a very good academic record failed to make it into the 'big time'. They had the knowledge, he said, but those who became successful had a better sense of timing. This applies equally to farming. To become a successful vegetable farmer, knowing what needs to be done is not enough. It's the timing of each step that can make all the difference between a good yield and a mediocre one.
