Protein Research Foundation (PRF)
The PRF's main objectives are to replace imported protein for animal use with locally produced protein, but also to promote better utilisation of protein. These objectives are promoted through funding research and technology transfers. Research is funded in terms of appropriate related crops, oil seeds and fish meal, as well as, the application and utilisation thereof by the most important fish, animal and poultry species that are specific to the South African market.
South African Grain Information Service (SAGIS)
The main goal of SAGIS is the gathering, processing, analysing and timeous distribution of reliable agronomic information to all roleplayers. As time progressed and the needs of the industries changed, SAGIS was approached to also render additional information services to the industries, for example the monitoring of import tariffs, audit certificates for minimum market access and weekly import and export figures for the maize and wheat industries.
Southern African Grain Laboratory (SAGL)
The Southern African Grain Laboratory is an accredited laboratory, established in 1997 as a reference laboratory on request of the South African Grain Industry. Besides the Crop Quality Division, the SAGL now also boasts a Crop Protection Division (CPD).
