Zambia: Grain and Feed

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   ZA2021-0001

Zambia produced its largest corn crop on record in the 2021/22 MY. This bumper corn crop of 3.6 million tons follows on Zambia’s third largest corn crop of 3.4 million tons produced in the 2020/21 MY. As a result, Zambia will have 1.5 million tons of surplus corn available for exports in the 2021/22 MY. However, the regional demand for corn is weaker than usual as most countries in Southern Africa produced above average crops in 2021 on favorable weather conditions. As a result, Post estimates that Zambia’s corn exports will be limited to about 700,000 tons and consequently stock levels at the end of the 2021/22 MY will increase by 57 percent to 1.3 million tons.
