SACTA acknowledges the importance of transformation in the South African agricultural landscape and will make an active contribution towards it by using 20% of all distributable funds for transformation. Breeding companies have the responsibility to apply such funds according to the NAMC guidelines for transformation with annual reporting on progress made towards transformational business plans. A focus on capacity building within the breeding and seed industry will bring forth breeders, agronomists and seed producers for the future. Added to the existing levies of the relevant trusts, this joint pool of funds will have significant benefits for agricultural transformation in South Africa.
The administration of SACTA is handled by L&L Agricultural Services – Trust and Company Administrators. The representative SACTA Board of Directors is committed to ensure food security through the development of new genetics and technology for open-pollinated crops.
