Farming activity and agricultural diversity in the Western Cape

The Western Cape has a unique and diverse climate and as such a unique farming or agriculture sector. Rainfall changes from year-round in the Southern Cape or the Eden district municipality to winter rainfall on the West Coast and Cape Winelands. Add to the rainfall the differences in topography from the mountain ranges of the Winelands to the far interior and escarpment of the Central Karoo, plus the cold Benguela water on the west and the much warmer Indian waters on the east.

This results in a unique crop diversity throughout the Western Cape. Farming activities changes radiacally from livestock farming in the Central Karoo, to fruit and wine farming in the winelands to wheat and field crop farming in the West Coast and Overberg districts to forestry in the Eden district.

Throught the province, mixed farming is on the order of the day and has the 2nd most contribution to agricultural activities behind Horticulture.
