This report presents the 2007 and 2008 Annual Agricultural Survey results. The annual
agriculture survey is a continuous program of household surveys carried out by Statistics
Here we document and discuss developments regarding aggregate input, output, and productivity developments within South Africa. To do so we draw on an entirely new set of production data stretching back to 1910/11 reported in Liebenberg 2010, as well as related evidence reported by other studies for South Africa and other countries within subSaharan Africa.
Agricultural production statistics reported at country or sub-national geopolitical scales are used in a wide range of economic analyses, and spatially explicit (geo-referenced) production data are increasingly needed to support improved approaches to the planning and implementation of agricultural development. However, it is extremely challenging to compile and maintain collections of sub-national crop production data, particularly for poorer regions of the world.
This report contains the detailed results of the 2002 Census of Commercial Agriculture for the Gauteng, undertaken in the Republic of South Africa.
