Early Breakfast with Abongile Nzelenzele

Stage 4 load shedding comes at the worst time for Western Cape Agriculture production


Jannie Strydom, CEO of Agri Western Cape, says fruit producers' peak irrigation time is largely over, but late varieties and citrus orchards still need water. He says critical irrigation time that can’t be made up, is lost due to load shedding. He says post-harvest irrigation is also under pressure and with large parts of the province still suffering from drought or trying to recover from severe water restrictions, load shedding brings an enormous cost pressure for producers as price takers.
