Agri NC, a federation of agricultural organisations, was established in 1904 as the South African Agricultural Union and consists of nine provincial and 24 commodity organisations.
Essentially Agri NC, through its affiliated membership, represents a diverse grouping of individual farmers regardless of gender, colour or creed. Agri NC`s policy advocacy includes work on trade negotiations, industrial policy, taxation, financing, land reform, labour laws, training, farmer development, environmental affairs, water rights and water pricing, other input-related issues, farm safety, law and order, infrastructure, technology development and transfer, statistical information and local government.
Furthermore, the organisation maintains an extensive communication network with its members and other affected communities, organisations and individuals. Agri NC is a member of high-level business, trade and agricultural entities including Business Unity South Africa (BUSA), the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the World Farmers’ Organisation (WFO) , the Southern African Confederation of Agricultural Unions (SACAU) and the Cairns Group Farm Leaders. Agri NC communicates with its members via its two-monthly magazine, namely Agri (incorporating Die Boer/The Farmer) and an electronic newsletter. It is also responsible for programme content for an agricultural radio programme aired on RSG.
