Zimbabwe: Grain and Feed Annual

Due to drought conditions, Zimbabwe’s corn crop for the 2019/20 MY is estimated to drop by 54 percent to 776,635 tons. In the 2018/19 MY Zimbabwe farmers produced 1.7 million tons of corn, which represent a 21 percent decrease from the previous year. As a result of the decrease in corn production, Post estimates that Zimbabwe will have to import about 1 million tons of corn in the 2019/20 MY to meet local demand and maintain the mandated strategic grain reserve of 500,000 tons. Due to stable production in the 2018/19 MY, Zimbabwe only imported an estimated 100,000 tons of corn.
