Farmers’ organisation AgriSA has urged South Africans to dip into their pockets to contribute to its drought fund.

Last year‚ R17-million was donated to the fund to assist drought-stricken farmers.

“The continuing drought in provinces such as the Northern Cape‚ the Western Cape and the Eastern Cape poses a serious threat to food production and is worsening by the day‚” said AgriSA’s Christo van der Rheede.

He said thousands of embattled farmers and workers benefitted from the money donated last year. They were given animal fodder and other forms of aid.
