Last year was challenging for the agricultural sector due to the severe drought experienced across the largest part of the country. The rainfall recorded during last season was at its lowest in 104 years, bringing tough times for both the livestock and grain industries. The natural grazing in the veld was limited and many producers were forced to supply feed to their animals to survive through the winter. The production of grains was under pressure and last year’s small crop volumes caused new record prices of various commodities, including maize (both white and yellow) as well as oilseeds such as soya beans and sunflower seeds.
