Statistics and Information
Reliable industry information is crucial for strategic decision making purposes. SABPA has engaged with blueberries, raspberry and blackberry growers to participate in an industry survey during 2016/17. The survey was done with the aid of a grant received from the Western Cape Department of Economic Development and Tourism to ensure that much needed industry information is available to relevant stakeholders.
The study entail information regarding the total area planted production area per cultivar, age analysis, and production curve of new plantings, medium term projections, pack-out percentages and export markets.
