The Small Grower Development Programme involves communities who plant potatoes mainly for food security with the remaining crop sold to the immediate community.  The main goals of the Small Grower Development programme are:

  • To disseminate production and business information through trials.
  • To provide farmers with practical training on good potato production practices.
  • To utilize cultivar or demonstration trials as a way of educating, training and disseminating important production information necessary for successful potato production.

An amount of R233 000 was spent towards Small Grower Development in KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape and the Western Cape. The Small Grower Development Programme receives strong support from DAFF in these provinces. Seventeen (17) projects were supported during the year under review and each Information Day was attended by an average of 60 people, making the total number of extended beneficiaries to over a thousand (1000).
