Abstract

A prosperous South African agricultural sector cannot be realised without the development of smallholder farmers but, more importantly, the involvement of young people. Experts warn that food security could face severe challenges by 2050, when South Africa is expected to have reached a population of 73 million. This increase in population will require double the current food production capacity. FarmSol, a black-owned agricultural services company and an implementation partner of the South African Breweries (SAB) Farmer Development Programme, plans to attract and empower more young farmers through its national programme. The organisation believes that agriculture is an important economic pillar for development, and that the sector offers various growth opportunities for young entrants.
