The irrigation scheme of the Loskop Dam, 32km south of the area, is the reason for the existence of the town of Groblersdal.

Laid out on the farm Klipbank and named for its owner WJ Grobler, it became the second largest irrigation settlement in the country with the completion of the 178 million m Loskop Dam and its extensive channeling network.

The main crops in this man-made floodplain are cotton, tobacco, citrus, table grapes, maize, wheat, vegetables, sunflower seed, peanuts, lucerne and peaces.
