Hortgro Agricultural Bursary 2020 – 2021

HORTGRO, a widely recognized deciduous fruit grower in South Africa, is currently inviting qualified individuals to submit their applications and to qualify for its Agricultural Bursary Programme. Be sure to review the minimum requirements to see if you’re eligible to apply.

HORTGRO’s origin goes back to 1652 when the first apple seeds where planted by Jan van Riebeek in the Cape of Good Hope. Soon after, small farmers began experimenting with other fruit crops and sold the produce to shipping vessels. In 1892, a small shipment of peaches was exported to the UK by Percy Molteno which historians regard as the start of fruit exporting in South Africa.

The Deciduous Fruit Exchange is the first governing body established in 1926 to provide support to producers in the sector. Through the years and after numerous name changes later, HORTGRO was adopted in 2013. It is responsible for the production, technology, research, markets, transformation and communication within the deciduous fruit industry.
