  • I am pleased to submit the Strategic plan for the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries 2011/12 to 2014/15 for tabling in Parliament.

  • Section 27(4) of Public Finance Management Act requires that the accounting officer of a department must submit measurable objectives within its department’s programmes to the National Assembly

  • In line with the requirements of the PFMA and Treasury Regulations, DAFF would like to table the 5 year Strategic Plan before Parliament

  • The Strategic plan complies with the guidelines provided by National Treasury and the Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA).

  • As required also by PFMA and Treasury Regulations, we are tabling a detailed plan for year one of the multi-year period

  • The presentation will focus on deliverables for the MTEF cycle for six budgetary programmes for 2011/12 to 2013/14, as allocated by National Treasury

  • Lastly the presentation will focus on the Annual Performance Plan of the six departmental programmes as reflected in Annexture1 of the strategic plan

Horticultural production decreased by 1,6%, mainly because of a drop in the production of citrus and subtropical fruit

Production of oranges decreased by 5,5% and that of potatoes by 3,6%

Animal production increased by 8,8% as a result of increases of 41,1% in fresh milk production and 5,6% in stock slaughtered

    Forestry sector l.jpg
    Forestry sector

    The area under forestry is about 1,28 million ha or approximately 1,0 % of the total RSA land area of 122,3 million ha.

    Although the area under plantations has decreased over the past few years from1 518 138 ha in 1997 to about 1 257 341 ha in 2008

    The volume of production has increased from 18 641 228 m³ to 20 100 000 m³ during the same period.

    Sector growth l.jpg
    Sector Growth

    • Growth is sensitive to seasonal changes in plantings, price movements and weather

    • Recent recession has taken its toll and recovery is underway (Fig. 2 illustrates better)

    • Recent figures shows the sector is following a recovery path


    Contribution to gdp l.jpg
    Contribution to GDP

    • The sector’s relative contribution to GDP has been declining over time – an indication of an economy increasingly more dependent on secondary and tertiary sectors (economic modernisation)

    • Agriculture component is largest contributor and fishing is the smallest

    Contribution to gdp cont l.jpg
    Contribution to GDP Cont...

    • The sector’s contribution over the past year has been hovering between just under 2% and just over 3%

    Investment in farms l.jpg
    Investment in Farms

    • Investment in farms has been increasing spurred on by favourable producer prices, but recession has stifled progress

    Food prices l.jpg
    Food Prices

    • Food price inflation has come down significantly over the past two years (from late teens in 2008 to the current 2%).However, it continues to be sensitive to world price movements and exchange rate.Recent upward trends in world prices is a concern (recent FAO report), and RSA has so far escaped due to the strong Rand.DAFF continues to monitor the trends and will be releasing regular updates.The Competition Commission has also been vigilant with regards to price fixing.

    Employment in the sector l.jpg
    Employment in the Sector

    • The sector has not escaped the recent job shedding that has taken place recently due to recession

    • Future growth in employment is dependent on implementation of the New Growth Path premised on sectors such as agriculture

    Challenges in the sector l.jpg
    Challenges in the Sector

    The unregulated market environment, which exposes the sector to fluctuations in world prices

    The decreasing share of field crops in agricultural production and South Africa’s move from being a net exporter of foods to a net importer

    The growing dominance of retail chains and an increasing farmer to retail price differential

    High input costs for, among others, fertiliser, fuel and feedstock

    Poorly skilled subsistence and emerging farmers, who only achieve low production volumes and productivity levels

    A lack of agricultural spatial planning and poor infrastructure, which makes it difficult for farmers to liaise with buyers, access markets and boost sales

    Poor information and knowledge management for small holder farmers, which prevents them from correctly addressing production challenges and

    Agricultural R&D agenda and practical implementation has little impact on the growth and development of the sector

    Challenges in the sector commercial l.jpg
    Challenges in the Sector: Commercial

    There has been a significant increase in the concentration of the commercial sector, as a result of smaller and less efficient business, unable to take advantage of increasing economies of scale, being forced out of the sector

    Profitability has increased, but at slower rates, and is attributed to a concentrated few that’s has been able to survive global market and financial challenges

    Transformation in the commercial sector in all three sectors (Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries) remains a challenge

    • Differences in interpretation, and implementation.

    • Transformation is still mainly translated as the number of ‘black’ individuals in a company.

    • Challenge with transformation not having significant socioeconomic impact. Plans per programmes


    Challenges in the sector commercial cont l.jpg
    Challenges in the Sector: Commercial Cont…

    An increase in production in agriculture, has mainly been horticultural crops, with a significant decrease in field crops (source of staple food), and translates into increasing concerns around National Food Security (Household Food Security)

    Increasing food prices, and anti-competitive behaviour too impacts on national food security

    Limited innovation systems, the slow rate of opening up new markets and value adding opportunities however there are challenges on certain commodities

    Many of the challenges stem from a lack of compliance rather than lack of appropriate regulations i.e. poor enforcement


    Challenges in the sector smallholder l.jpg
    Challenges in the Sector: Smallholder

    Inadequate support services / Extension services essential to grow and develop the smallholder and subsistent sector

    Technical support services currently inadequate, there is a need for an upscale and expansion of support offered

    Uncoordinated spatial plans to guide implementation of support programmes, access their economic impact and ensure easy monitoring and evaluation

    Challenges in the sector smallholder cont l.jpg
    Challenges in the Sector: Smallholder Cont…

    Inadequate and unstructured intervention in regard to provision of on-farm infrastructure such as water sources (dams, windmills, irrigation schemes) essential for sustainable production

    Implementation of the mechanisation support programme very weak due to the lack of a targeted programme

    Lack of support for the established small-holders to establish commodity groups

    Inadequate access to agro-processing industries for value addition

    No guaranteed market for products produced by small holders

    Poor infrastructure to ensure equitable access to development finance through our grant system and loans programmes

    Uncoordinated or lack of targeted training for smallholders

    Challenges in the sector smallholders cont l.jpg
    Challenges in the Sector: Smallholders Cont…

    Aquaculture – Limited investments made in terms of hatcheries, research and disease management to promote aquaculture

    Non-existent support (access to equipment, finance, extension and training) for the established small-holders in the fishery industry and small growers in forestry

    Inadequate access to agro-processing industries for value addition

    Insufficient access to development finance through our grant system and loans programmes i.e fisheries and forestry

    Policy and programme interventions l.jpg
    Policy and programme interventions

    Government adoption of the 12 Key Outcomes by the January 2010 Cabinet Lekgotla

    Signing of performance agreements and Delivery Agreements with DAFF directly contributes to following 3 Outcomes with clear targets:

    Outcome (4): Decent employment through inclusive economic growth

    Outcome (7): Vibrant, equitable, sustainable rural communities contributing

    towards food security for all

    Outcome (10): Protect and enhance our environmental assets and natural

    Conclusion l.jpg

    The strategy will be cascaded down to operations for implementation

    Operational plans will be developed from strategic outputs, broken down into clear milestones with implementable activities

    Operational plans will highlight various action steps to be undertaken in order to address the respective Unit’s priorities, the various deliverables and its associated performance indicators, responsible persons, target dates etc

    Individual work plans aligned to the operational plans will be developed to reflect on the aspects of day to day service delivery activities of DAFF to ensure that the DAFF business community is well informed

    Service standards and turnaround times will be developed for each service which needs to be reported against on a monthly basis

    Monitoring and evaluation will be conducted monthly on planned outputs in the strategic plan and analyses of progress towards achieving strategic plan outputs

    The reports will be aligned to the status reported against strategic outputs.

    Reports will be produced quarterly and annually.
