The fourth annual Agri’s Got Talent song contest was introduced by the fruit industry body Hortgro, in collaboration with the VinPro foundation and the Western Cape Department of Agriculture.

The entries are open to workers in specific fruit industries. These are the apple, pear, plum, peach, nectarine, apricots, wine grapes, pomegranate, raspberry, blackberry, blueberry, cherry, dried fruit, honeybush tea, table grapes, fynbos or the olive industry.
