My Department provides public information about the Department's wide range of schemes and programmes.

The table below lists my Department's communications initiatives for 2019 which highlighted schemes and programmes of importance to the farming community.  The advertisements were primarily placed in the specialised farming press, provincial and national newspapers and, on occasion, in the form of radio and online advertisements. Decisions on the placement of notices are made on a case-by-case basis, depending on the nature of the advertisement and the target audience.
