Map of Groblersdal, South Africa

The town is South Africa's second largest irrigation settlement. The main crops in this man-made floodplain are cotton, tobacco, citrus fruit, table grapes, maize, wheat, vegetables, sunflower seeds, peanuts, lucerne and peaches, although not in order of importance as some previously leading crops e.g. tobacco, have made way for others such as grapes.

Groblersdal was laid out on the farm "Klipbank" taking advantage of the Loskop Dam, and named after the original owner WJ Grobler.
