The Agribusiness Development Agency (ADA)
The Agribusiness Development Agency (ADA) recently celebrated its 10 years in existence. The entity, which opened its doors in 2009, was established to deal with supporting emerging black commercial farmers, especially in the land reform programme as the raison d’etre. A number of land reform farms were on the brink of collapse due a number of reasons including lack of farming skills by the new owners and over-indebtedness. The period during which the ADA was established was also marked by unprecedented food price hikes and a world economy in recession. The ADA has recorded some remarkable success during its first decade of existence, notwithstanding numerous challenges that were faced by the entity.
