Winter crop season to start soon

South Africa had a fairly good production season in 2021/22 with wheat at 2,3 million tonnes, which is the largest harvest in 20 years and record yield in some crops such as canola and oats. The large harvest was on the back of an expansion in area plantings and favourable weather conditions that supported the yields. The winter crop season will now commence at the end of April, mainly in the Western Cape, and the following months in other provinces.
