The NAMC and the Department of Agriculture, Rural Development and Land Administration have collaborated on the design of groundnuts development scheme which will be roll-out in three districts of the Mpumalanga Province. The scheme is targeting over 100 producers on 2000 ha of land.
All systems for the implementation have been put in place. The market for the commodity has been secured; business plans have been developed and a Committee has been established to monitor the implementation and progress of the project. The NAMC is now awaiting for the operationalisation and funding for the project from the Department.
