Vision: Unity about Agriculture
Mission: Agri SA promotes the development, profitability, stability and sustainability of primary agriculture in South Africa by means of its involvement and input on national and international policy and the implementation thereof.
Agri SA, a federation of agricultural organisations, was established in 1904 as the South African Agricultural Union and consists of nine provincial and 26 commodity organisations as well as 44 corporate members.
Essentially Agri SA, through its affiliated membership, represents a diverse grouping of individual farmers regardless of gender, colour or creed. Agri SA’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 SA 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 SA communicates with its members via its two-monthly magazine, namely Agri (incorporating Die Boer/The Farmer) an electronic newsletter as well as a policy bulletin.
