This report is intended to serve as a handy guide to the various commodities in South Africa and also to showcase the economic contribution and potential for further growth and job creation each has.
Various sources were consulted during the composition of this report such as the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries and Statistics SA. Due to the nature in which data is captured by different commodity organisations, there are some gaps in the data.
Agri SA hopes this report attracts positive attention to agriculture and spurs young people and students to consider a career in agriculture.
For any further enquiries, please feel free to contact Agri SA directly as well as any of its provincial and commodity organisations.
