Fresh produce production under irrigation by small-scale farmers in South Africa
MetadataShow full item record
This report documents the status of fresh produce production under irrigation by small-scale farmers2 in South Africa and investigates the potential for expanding current levels of production, with an emphasis on land redistribution. Fresh produce includes the cultivation of vegetables and green maize under irrigation. Irrigation includes both formal irrigation schemes as well as systems organised by individual farmers (including rainwater harvesting). This report forms a part of the Capacity Building Programme for Employment Promotion (CBPEP), funded by the European Union and undertaken by the Government Technical Advice Centre (GTAC).
