Johannesburg - The North West province has trained more than 1 500 emerging farmers in the past three years, premier Thandi Modise said on Monday.

She said 1 828 farmers were trained in livestock, poultry and crop production in an effort to improve employment opportunities in the farming sector and promote economic livelihoods.

"Fresh produce markets that we have launched in Mahikeng and Taung are to be extended to Bojanala Platinum and Dr Kenneth Kaunda Districts in due course to improve access to affordable and diverse food," she said in a statement.

"Primary animal health care programmes that were extended to Morokweng village in Dr Ruth Segomotsi Mompati are to be rolled out to other districts across the province as well."

Modise said the objective of the training intervention was to improve food production and reposition the province as the food basket of South Africa.

She said the provincial department of agriculture had commissioned a team of scientists to review livestock improvement strategy to support agrarian reform.
