Senegal: Senegal Oilseed Report - Peanuts

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   SG2022-0010

Senegal Marketing Year (MY) 2022/23 area and production levels are forecast to increase 1.6 percent and 7 percent at 1.23 million hectares (Mha) and 1.8 million tons (Mt), respectively, on expectations of a good farm gate price, typical weather conditions, and appropriate use of fertilizer. Post forecasts MY 2022/23 exports at 460,000 tons, increasing 15 percent compared to the previous year based on available supply and higher demand. The Government of Senegal (GOS) estimates 2021/22 area harvested at 1.21 Mha, a 1.2 percent decrease compared to the previous year due to the loss of seedlings caused by several interruptions of rain at the beginning of the campaign which discouraged farmers to plant more. The GOS estimates 2021/22 production to decrease 6.5 percent at 1.68 million tons due to a lack of rain during the growing stage. The rain started late and there were recurrent dry spells, especially in the departments of Tambacounda and Koumpentoum.
