SUMMARY FOR MAIZE
 Overall a good production year for the Southern Africa region.

 
The current growing season is expected to give an above average maize yield in most countries of the Southern Africa region.
 
Swaziland performs best with yields expected to be +18% relative to the previous 5-year average. Most other countries as Angola (+7%), Lesotho (+3%), Malawi (+3%), Mozambique (+8%), South Africa (+7%), Zambia (+4%) and Zimbabwe (+7%) have good yield prospects.

11 May 2009 - In Angola (-6%) and Zambia (-5%) the sorghum growing season has been dry and local reductions to average yields are expected. Well above average sorghum yields are seen in Lesotho (+7%). Crop yield prospects are normal to good in Botswana (-1%) and South-Africa (+2%).

In Malawi, past 10 days no changes were seen in the difference yield relative to the five years average. Yield reductions are expected in many parts of the country although local differences are seen. National average yields are expected to be below average (-5%).

In Zambia and Angola the growing season has been dry up to now and reductions in yield up to -5% are expected. Above average maize yields are seen in Botswana (+5%), South Africa (+3%) and Swaziland (+2%) and 1% to 3% below average national yields in Lesotho, Mozambique and Namibia. Moderate dry conditions in Malawi and Zimbabwe could result in yield decreases that are about 6% lower than the 5 years average.
