SA Farmers Working to Avoid Labour Laws

Agriculture in SA is doing well, despite farmers’ intention to avoid labour legislation

Reports have found that, agriculture in South Africa is doing well, however, South African farmers are working to avoid labour legislation such as land claims and higher minimum wages for farmworkers.

As an indication of the health of agriculture, four state-of-the-art tractors, each costing R4.5 million, were sold on the first two days of the agricultural show, held from 13-16 May 2014.

Political and economic analyst, JP Landman, stresses that although there are currently only about 37 000 farmers left from the 66 000 in 1990, commercial farming produces a third more food than in 1990, despite challenges like the collapse of local government, land reform and strict labour laws.
