Afrikaans translation:Die eerste agt weke van bemesting/bevrugting.
Explanation:
Back translation: The first eight weeks of fertilisation. Choice of either "bevrugting" or "bemesting" depends on context. If you mean biological fertilisation of, say, an animal, the word is "bevrugting". If you mean fertilisation of soil, the right word would be "bemesting". Difficult to say without context.
