There is an agricultural land use dataset based in the SIQ field boundaries data.  This is a highly detailed dataset showing different crop types.  I'm just not sure who is the official custodian. Try the Limpopo Department of Agriculture first.

My Leader,

Maybe my request was not phrased properly. I am not looking for cadastral data, I am looking for information that will show me parcel of land where agriculture is being practiced in the province.

Yes SG will assist with the info from the land audit project, but that would not be the latest information.

Dear Vutomi

The provincial office of the Surveyor General will be your reliable source for cadastre and/or vector dataset

Dear All,
I am looking for spatial dataset showing the location of farmers in Limpopo province. Can anyone assist or direct me to places where one can obtain such datasets.

Kind Regards
