IMPLIKASIES VAN TARIFERING VIR DIE VRYSTAATSE LANDBOU

Tariffication means more than the simple replacement of quantitative import controls by tariffs;changes in the marketing systems of commodities. Implications of tariffication for Free State maize, wheat, beef and dairy producers were investigated. Indications are that in future, producer prices will be largely influenced by international trade conditions. World prices, exchange rates and import tariffs will, together with local market conditions, determine local prices. The Free State is centrally located with respect to its main markets while high inland transportation costs form a natural import bam·er against imported products. The level of tariffs is important for the well-being of producers, and so also the process of tariffication.
