Foreword
PRESENTLY there is ample opportunity and good reasonfor emerging farmers in the warmer subtropical regions of South Africa, to become involved in fruit and nut production.Once established, the benefit of these high-value cropscan be derived over many years, while intercropping withgrain and vegetable cash crops can easily be practised.The condensed information contained in this booklet couldbe very useful to small-scale farmers to improve theirknowledge of cultivation practices, expand their incomeand in generating opportunities while also supportingagribusiness development in the country.These crops are rich in proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins,minerals and beneficial oils which supply a considerablepercentage of the daily nutrient requirements, and makean important contribution to a balanced diet. We sincerelyhope that this production manual will be of great benefit tofarmers and will furthermore motivate many others to alsobecome involved in subtropical fruit and nut production.
