Abstract

The science of long-term climate seasonal forecasts is well developed. While much is done to produce forecasts little has been done to assess their uptake and value particularly for rural farmers in South Africa. A study of North West Province indicated that the constraints placed on developing farmers reduced their usage of forecasts. Suggestions to improve the situation are offered. - (AJC)
