The Silo is a fortnightly agricultural newspaper printed and distributed in Lesotho. The paper mainly publishes environmental and agricultural news in and around the country.

In its 13 July 2011 issue, The Silo featured King Letsie III, presenting the interview as a special edition for the King's birthday celebrations, a public holiday duly observed each year in Lesotho.[1][2]

As the only agricultural newspaper in the country,[3][not in citation given] The Silo follows in the foot-steps of its predecessors in neighboring South Africa, Farmers Weekly, in that its content is restricted to farming, environmental and agricultural news only.
