Cape Town - The government will train more than 2 000 small-scale farmers over the next year in cost effective farming methods, according to documents tabled with the 2012/13 Budget in Parliament on Wednesday.

The Estimates of National Expenditure says the farmers will also be advised on which crops to plant by the department of rural development and land reform.

"Improve access to affordable and diverse food by training 2 120 farmers in cost effective farming methods and advising them on the different types of crops that can be planted efficiently in different areas by 2013," the document states.
