Zimbabwe’s corn crop for marketing year (MY) 2022/23 is estimated at 1.6 million metric tons (MMT), representing a drop of 43 percent from the bumper crop of 2.7 MMT produced in MY 2021/22. Many factors contributed to the drop in production including sub-optimal weather conditions, high input costs and macro-economic challenges. As a result, the Zimbabwean government lifted the ban on corn imports that was in place since May 2021. Corn imports in MY 2022/23 is estimated at 400,000 MT and include provisions for maintaining the mandated minimum strategic grain reserve of 500,000 MT in physical stocks.
