Zimbabwe’s corn crop for the 2020/21 MY is estimated at 907,628 tons, 17 percent higher thanthe 2019/20 MY’s corn crop of 776,635 tons. However, Zimbabwe still recorded below average yields due to an extremely challenging and climatically sub-optimal summer crop season. The 2020/21 MY is the second consecutive year Zimbabwe recorded a below average corn harvest, and food insecurity is of severe concern. As a result, Post estimates that Zimbabwe will have to import about 1.0 million tons of corn in the 2020/21 MY. Late in 2019, Zimbabwe lifted restrictions on the importation of genetically engineered (GE) corn. This paved the way for South Africa, with a bumper corn crop, to be the main supplier of corn to Zimbabwe.
