Zambia: Tight supplies of corn in Zambia

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The Zambian government estimates a 16 percent drop in the production of corn in the 2019/20 MY to 2.0 million tons, due to drought that impacted the southern parts of the country. However, Zambia should have enough corn to meet local demand after carry-over stocks from the previous marketing year are taken into account. In the 2018/19 MY, Zambia produced 2.4 million tons of corn. Due to the projected decrease in production, Zambia’s corn supplies in the 2019/20 MY will be tight and exports will be limited.
