Omri van Zyl (Agri SA Chief Executive Officer) said it was important that the country rally to the aid of the farmers:
“The present drought is the worst in over two decades and the implications could have dire consequences on the country’s food security. While the immediate impact of the drought will be felt by the producer, the consumer will feel the effects as well through shortages of products and price increases of related commodities. This is why it’s important for us to go the extra mile in support of our farmers.”
