Pretoria - Recent floods caused about R1bn in lost agricultural production, and another R1bn in damage to farm infrastructure, AgriSA president Johannes Möller said on Tuesday.

Speaking at a joint press conference with the farmers' body in Pretoria, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Minister Tina Joemat-Pettersson said the government would seek to help farmers, but that "there will not be any financial compensation".

As soon as government had better figures it would announce further details of the package it expected to roll out.
