As beekeepers, we to want to participate in SHEP. Market access is a big issue. With that goes a need to upgrade and commercially standardize our beekeeping tools and agroprocessing support. We want to move our beekeepers further down the supply chain so our communities can reap the income benefits and improve living standards. Policy must be developed that make it easier for our black beekeepers to access polination opportunities. Every drop of nectar, propolis, honeydew and pollen must empower our beekeepers in the communities they live. Shep must help. limpopo@beekeeper.co.za

Thank you Honorable Minister for the informative sessions. the government has lots of programmes which are working but my concern is that it only works for some individuals and NOT for some. It has been more than three decades since we have been farming as commercial farmers, but no matter how much we request support from our own government we don't get any and we huge contracts with the likes of Schoeman Boerdery, Cotton SA, Tiger brand Bio-diesel etc. Can we please have some intervention on this matter.

We have red meat commodity group farmers in Lepelle Nkumpi Grootfontein service center. This farmers kept their livestock in an asbestos area i.e Bewaarskloof and they are doing very well so they have managed to do two boreholes and two grabs and they need our support I.e. fence then the area is not healthy for our lives cause is a risk to go there. So how can we help them? Maybe Honourable MEC can assist with land. lephaimolepo@gmail.com

We are in the Vibrant Potato, Tomato & Butternut producing area of Limpopo (Blouberg Municipality)We are at the Verge of reaching Commercial farming Level.*We kindly need a shared Packaging Facility as well as the Shared Potato Machenization since they are too expensive for us*Also give working resources to our Economists, Extension and Advisory services, so that they can be able to reach Farmers.

Please also enhance the governance over the leases. The previous cycle was prompting the farmers to apply for leases without typical physical inspection which made it difficult for some to even respond. Not knowing the current use, potential and capability of the leased farm. In my view it was rushed and most applied just based on the size.

Giving inputs on the wrong time to farmers for the sake of meeting targets by officials is not appropriate. There might be challenges of bureaucracy in approval process, that might be caused by either business processes or incompetence. It is best to use automation business processes to minimize element of corruption. The automation will address issue of avoiding same farmers receiving inputs or assistance from the government every year while other farmers are not getting same opportunities, etc.

Can we also note that we are running a Business in Farming therefore we also need to do follow ups when we have raised our challenges with the Dept because this is a collaborative process that we are in.

Ephraim Mogale Municipality Farmers
03:28:46
As Ephraim Mogale farmers we are experiencing the following issues: 1. Lack of resources to debush our lands 2. Difficulties around accessing Water Use Licences 3. Inability of our Extension Officers to travel because of budget cuts (They are not able to travel and share the scarce available government vehicles) 4. Highly inflated PESI prices from the service providers disadvantaging us 5. Inclusion of infrastructure such as fencing, boreholes, tractors etc in the farmer support programs.

Incompetence in key positions is an issue because there is lack of appropriate decision making, and that is a risk. Key positions must be given based on qualifications, and officials should be trained now and then to empower them in the area of their work in order to respond to challenges around them.

Hi I Shoke Nkgadima from Glen Cowie in Makhuduthamaga Municipality. Access to land is a serious issue in this Municipality. 30% is mountains, no commercial farming activities taking place and it is more of a residential area. There is idling arable land in-between Ga Chuene and Polokwane and up to Makhado Town. Please help us access the land so we can participate effectively in your programs. shoke.nkgadima@gmail.com

Honorable Minister: there are lot of farmers who produce but their commodities end up in the dust bin because access of the market is a challenge. May Honorable Minister must appoint task team from different provinces or municipality or district to identify the challenges that farmers face, each province or municipality or district might have different challenges, research in those areas can be helpful if we want to address food security in the country.

" Highly inflated PESI prices from the service providers disadvantaging us" as raised by one speaker. The +/- 30% charge on PESI is a concern seeking clarity for farmers. It could be how it was structured but public will not know unless clarified, hence questions of why the charge exist, worth clarifying. Matlou CGCSA

Hon MEC and acting HOD can you please engage with the Department of cooperative governance and traditional affairs to ease the issue of accessing PTOs for farmers at our local traditional authority as it very expensive hence our farmers cannot afford to pay moreover most of our farmers are Youth and they are unemployed. For example in Zebediela traditional authority they need R4000 per ha. to have a PTO and I think is unfair. Please help. mjlechelele@gmail.com

During the tenure of the then Minister Gugile, there was establishment of AgriParks and AgriHubs for Agribusiness. Could those be followed up and the committees are silent. They can be used to promote local markets. DALRRD to revive those. M & E mechanisms are highly crucial at all angles.

Advice to My fellow farmers:Government can't afford to do Everything for every farmer 1. spend Valuable income on income Generating Farm assets e.g tractors,irrigations. 2. Farming needs passion , dedication and perseverance. 3. Farming is not a Get rich quick Tender system. 4 Avoid expensive Lavish cars that don't Regenerate money/income. 5. Learn to spend Money on your own farming Business.

Thank you Minister for making time for us and this initiative. I am into Intergrated Aquaculture and the business requires a lot of funds to get it up and running. Land Aquaculture is doable in Limpopo and we need financial support to go commercial. We would like to get technical support from our local DALRRD offices. We feel that Aquaculture is over regulated and that makes it difficult for us to move forward. May u please consider assisting Aquaculture projecrs with funds for environmental compliances. DIHLAPING AQUACULTURE PROJECTS has received assistance from DEFF for EIA. Thanks for that .
