A good season for South Africa's winter crops

Agbiz chief economist Wandile Sihlobo says Agbiz's recent analysis of South Africa’s agricultural production for the 2019/20 and 2020/21 production seasons has largely carried a positive tone. Over the past month, our focus has been on summer crops and horticulture, where record yields have been a dominant feature in the discussion. For summer crops, we maintain our upbeat view that the 2020/21 season will show further improvement in output compared with the 2019/20 season.
