Habitat Support needed as drought hits NW

Pretoria - The North West province has put in place dedicated funding for emergency relief to mitigate the effects of drought on livestock in the province.

An estimated R37.2 million for fodder supply is needed to mitigate the effects.

The Provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development has identified the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, the National Disaster Management Centre and National Treasury as possible funders.

Already, the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development has provided emergency fodder to 6553 farmers in Dr Ruth Segomotsi Mompati and Ngaka Modiri Molema Districts.

In the province, 1 342 tons of fodder was distributed across 43 villages within the two districts at the cost of R7.2 million during the third quarter of the past financial year.

The districts, according to the provincial government were the hardest hit as the province has experienced below normal rainfall for the past twelve months with nine dam levels ranging from moderately dry to extremely dry.

Extremely hot temperatures are forecasted during autumn, which will aggravate the drought conditions currently experienced in the province, the effects of which will be predominant during winter and spring. –
