KWAZULU-NATAL Agriculture and Rural Development MEC Cyril Xaba has assured graduates of the Cedara College Class of 2015 that their skills will be utilised to grow agriculture in the province.

Xaba told the graduates to be proud of the choice they made in studying agriculture.

He said their skills were needed as KwaZulu-Natal forges ahead growing agriculture and agro-processing to ensure food security and eradicate poverty­.

Multiple opportunities will be available for agricultural graduates, he said, adding that the department is working on a graduate placement programme­ and there will also be opportunities within “agri-parks” that are being developed in 10 district municipalities­ and as land reform farms are being revitalised.

He urged the graduates to develop an entrepreneurial spirit and commended the college for moving towards a more business-orientated curriculum.

He said the graduates must aim for the ultimate goal of farming for themselves as the country needs its next generation of farmers to continue.
