Good Morning All, My name if Flubert,1. Does SHPE only target Government Extension or do they implement these Project considering Private Extension collaboration?2. Quantity and Frequency are very crucial in penetrating the market. Small scale famers struggle to cope with these two requirement, especially in Gauteng context.

Anton Maswikaneng

@Flubert , SHEP targets farmers with the extension personnel being in the forefront of the implementation thereof, aggregating needs to be an approach to deploy to ensure consistant supply and maintaining the market access
beverly Mhlabane
01:29:40
We applaud the interventions that the government is taking in focusing on agriculture. However, implementation still is a challenge.

As an emerging farmer who still paying of his bond and encounter negative impact of COVID I notice I was rejected funding due to not planting last year and when raising the issue of COVID and stating I needed to also pay off my bond to make sure I do not loss my farm and needed support to plant on crop and fencing of the plot been turned down by government. From this platform how could I be supported to plant and trade?
Anton Maswikaneng
01:32:07
@Berverly, working together and other strategic partners will assist in ensuring implementation thereof, government remain optimistic to implement is program

Good morning, I'm in Bronkhorstspruit with a state land of about 447 hectares, I hope this program came at the right time, so looking forward to participate fully...🙏
nokuphiwamoloi
01:33:27
@Anton, does the SHEP program have a set requirement for farmers to adhere to, in order to be assisted/considered?
beverly Mhlabane
01:33:33
Example. There was JOBsfund open to farmers. we were told that the department of agriculture had approved our project however, this process was stuck at Landbank. now when we go to landbank they tell us that they need the approval from the department because the quotations have changed. This is inevitable becase obviously after over a year, the quotation will change. PLEASE MS MINISTER, TURN AROUND TIME OF YOUR PROCESSES NEED TO BE IMPROVED.
Anton Maswikaneng
01:34:31
@Victor, I note your issue is mainly agricultural support in general, kindly lets enagage, mpho.tlape@gauteng.gov.za, 066 488 3056

As a community Development worker in Gauteng in Johannesburg ward 60 , I am in agreement with some of the views that are raised by the farmers. We need to address the responses that are not really satisfying from officials that are on the field to all regions in Gauteng.

Vusi Skosana
02:02:09
Banks or potential funders require contracts in order to consider application. I have found it a mission impossible to secure contracts or even a letter of intent in order move an inch. Hence our project remains unsustainable due to lack of basic infrastructure. Can the SHEP assist in anyway?

Morning. I am Bridget Tshikalange, GDARD extension officer in Suurman, with 66 subsistance producers. According to Mr Ramashala farmers are not getting enough support from government. They battle with land preparation, to hire a tractor is costly. Infrastructure in place is also not securing their commodities from theft.

Plot 108 JR 440 PORTION 5 allocate to Tallman. They have lease agreement problem and have been in several meetings with the Department of Rural Development. They have been attacked twice by the rivals who want to take the land. The department wrote a letter indicating that the land is not allocated to anyone and the beneficiary have been in the farm for more than 20 years. The beneficiaries have also apply for beneficiary selection to the department since 2016 . They are requesting assistance regarding this issue since without lease agreement there is no support we are receiving.

Hello Minister, I have done applications for borehole since 2019, nothing has been done yet, we are having a challenge of applications for funding taking too long.
Pride makhura
02:19:33
It's ridiculous to apply for funding or send an email to the department, and two years later you still haven't heard anything from the department. Extension officers cannot even follow up, yet they are working for the department, they always "don't know". I suggest that the minister develops a tracking system, where every farmer will get a progress report or feedback (whether good or bad news) of their queries. Thank you
Veronica Marian
02:19:54
Mr Chair,Only selected people can an opportunity to express their views. We are being MUTED by the HOST who do NOT allow us to unmute ourselves.Is this meeting for selected people only or up and coming farmers in South Africa that is born and bred here?

Paul 0814840844 - Can the deparment be tasked with structuring forums in productive areas, to group farmers and address key challenges of farmers on a formal platform that is accessible to producers of varying scale and that can allow for solutions to be developed and implmeneted at a local level, this will relieve much pressure from the government in providing aid to farmers.

We appreciate the commitment of the Honorable Minister to engage with farmers. The challenge is with extension officers which are not empowered to provide the status of the applications, for 3 years applying for assistance from the agriculture regarding irrigation system and the greenhouse tunnels. I was told that my application was approved but to this date nothing coming forth. I think the extension officers they do their part by informing farmers about the agricultural programs, unfortunately it end there. They will always indicate that they are waiting for the head office for feedback. Feedback and transparency is crucial from the department, for instance, how many applications were received for specific input and how many are approved, and how many are rejected and the reasons behind.
Mbali

Mbali 061 433 8060, mbali1molefe@gmail.comMy challenge I with the current limitations with assisting start-up farmers. We were told by extension officer in Randfontein that the only support that is currently available is with production input only, leaving out assistance of supporting with material for building infrastructure. This leaves out the new entrants while we are still paying for the rent as per lease agreements for the land that we are intending to work on.Kindly allocate resources for assistance.

We’re still waiting for the chickens and without fencing and enough water we will have a challenge to bear good results. The other thing we had to organize our own transport to collect the feed from Sebokeng. We had to make ends meet to ensure that we collect the feed spending R10000,00. That’s a challenge with the lack of funding
