Zimbabwe: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   RH2023-0003

Zimbabwe’s corn crop for marketing year 2023/24 is estimated at 1.5 million metric tons. This represents an increase of five percent from the previous marketing year’s crop, mainly due to a normal rainfall season in the northern parts of the country. However, with an estimated annual corn requirement of 2.2 million metric tons, Zimbabwe will have to import approximately 450,000 metric tons of corn in marketing year 2023/24. This excludes the mandate to maintain a minimum strategic reserve of 500,000 metric tons of grain in physical stocks. Zimbabwe will mainly depend on South Africa for corn imports. South Africa produced its third largest corn crop on record and has more than 3.0 million metric tons of corn available for exports during marketing year 2023/24.
