Improving the livelihoods of disadvantaged sugarcane growers while mitigating and eliminating impacts that their cultivation activities have on freshwater systems, this project is strengthening and expanding existing collaboration between commercial farmers and previously disadvantaged sugarcane farmers through a mentorship program. Additionally, this project is creating new farm layouts that reduce impacts on freshwater resources and improve income from sugarcane. The project is supporting the implementation of a bio-control program in the catchment around Noodsberg that will seek to improve water quality and sugarcane production by reducing pest pressure and pesticide use.

Project Results

New farm layouts reduce impacts on freshwater resources and improve income from sugarcane.
