Zimbabwe: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   RH2021-0002

Zimbabwe’s corn crop for the 2021/22 marketing year (MY) is estimated at 2.7 million tons, an increase of almost 200 percent from the 907,628 tons of corn produced in the 2020/21 MY. The 2021/22 MY corn crop will be Zimbabwe’s largest corn crop since the 1984/85 MY. A combination of expansion in area and favorable weather conditions contributed to the largest corn crop in more than three decades. As a result, the Zimbabwean government terminated the issuing of import permits for corn and corn meal to local grain millers as supply exceeds local demand. Zimbabwe will also, for the first time in three years, manage to maintain the minimum strategic grain reserve of 500,000 tons in physical stocks.
