Farming in South Africa has always been one of the county’s main areas of expertise. South Africa’s favourable climate and nutrient rich soil makes it perfect for large scale agriculture. The industry employs about 1 million people, or 30% of the South African workforce, and is one of six countries in the world that is capable of exporting food on a regular basis. Farming in South Africa can be done with a variety of crops. We are one of the largest producers of a number of foods, like grapefruit, green maize and chicory roots. Due to the huge role South Africa plays in food production, finding the latest farming equipment and tractors for sale is a vital step in staying ahead in the food production industry in South Africa. The best way to keep up with developments in agriculture is to attend events like the African Farmers Workshop and Expo and the 3rd Annual Limpopo Agricultural Expo. We will now go into more details on each of these amazing agricultural events.
African Farmers Workshop and Expo: 18-20 August 2015 in Muldersdrift
The fifth annual African Farmers Workshop and Expo will take place at the Oakfield Farm, Muldersdrift. This is an interactive agricultural show that aims to promote and empower the emerging African farmers of South Africa. It seeks to help those who are interested in farming in South Africa with training, skills development and opportunities available in the South African agricultural industry.
The secondary function is to bridge the gap between the private and public sectors. The organisers want to bring the expertise and know-how of the commercial farmers to private South African farmers. This will be achieved through talks and information that will be available at the Expo.
Many big companies and organisations will also be there. These Companies will showcase their farm equipment for sale in South Africa and all the knowledge that goes along with it. These products will range from basic farming tools to tractors for sale.
