Agricultural conference and study tour–Western Cape

Location-Western Cape: The Western Cape's agriculture is distinguished in several ways from that in the rest of South Africa, largely because of the physical resource differences.

The winter rainfall region of the Boland and the year-round rainfall of the Southern Cape provide agricultural conditions that make the crop mix and productive potential unique. A main feature of the region's agriculture is production stability, based on stable and relatively adequate winter rainfall and supported by well-developed infrastructure for both input supply and output processing. Agriculture is one of the primary pillars of the Western Cape economy. Although the province contributes some 14% to the country's Gross Domestic Product, it generates about 23% of the total value added of the agricultural sector in South Africa, which was R50 billion. As many as 11 commodities contribute significantly to agricultural production, with fruit, poultry/eggs, winter grains, viticulture and vegetables together comprising more than 75% of total output. Consequently, diversity of agricultural enterprises also contributes to agriculture's general stability.
