SADC REGIONAL OVERVIEW
While preliminary forecasts are yet to be made in most SADC countries, indicative REWU forecasts suggest a 26% decline in the 2000/2001 SADC maize harvest to between 14.45 and 15.10 million tonnes compared with last season's above-average output of 20.10 million tonnes. The decline is attributed to reduced plantings in South Africa and Zimbabwe, excessive rains and flooding in Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe, while a devastating mid-season dry spell affected several other countries.
