 This Act sets out the framework for the establishment of Agricultural Services Board (ASB) by the council of a municipal district or specialised municipality. ASB activities include: providing for weed and pest control; soil and water conservation; assisting in the control of animal diseases, encouraging sustainable agriculture to improve the economic viability of producers; and promoting agricultural policies that meet the needs of the municipality. The Minister may enter into agreements with ASBs in order to provide funding for the mentioned activities. Additionally, advisory committees may be established for these purposes and agricultural fieldmen may be appointed in order to help carry out operational functions.
