The agricultural master plan does not meet the minimum requirements of scientificity, fairness, inclusivity or clarity, and is therefore doomed to fail.

The main objections to the master plan are that it lacks inclusivity, uses the ANC’s seriously discredited model of transformation as a foundation and farmers are not mentioned much in the text.
This is an agricultural plan WITHOUT farmers!
Saai, TAU-SA, WRSA and NEASA, as well as various academics, scientists, opposition parties, economists, local and district agricultural unions and individual farmers who rejected the plan, work closely together to develop a more inclusive, market-friendly and state-friendly alternative master plan . Unlike the flawed state-driven plan, the alternative one will be more transparent and inclusive and all interested agricultural-related organizations are invited to participate. All farmers should have an opportunity to provide input as well.
The alternative plan will be introduced in parliament by opposition parties outside the sphere of influence of the ANC.
Farmers' voices were not taken into account, do you believe an alternative plan is needed?
