Highlights

• The Survival Minimum Expenditure Basket increased for all regions, as food prices are gradually increasing.

• An uptick in maize grain and pulse prices was observed, because households are now beginning to turn to markets for supplies.

• Grain price levels in the coming months may be influenced by the magnitude and type of possible climatic hazards as well as market interventions emanating from the State’s grain bodies
