Summer crops / Somergewasse
Intentions to plant (2020) Voorneme om somergewasse

Producers intentions to plant summer crops are based on the results of a non-probability survey conducted by the Directorate: Statistics and Economic Analysis of the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries and reflects the position as at the middle of October 2019.

According to the results of the survey, commercial producers intend to plant 2,519 million ha of maize for 2020, which is 9,51% or 218 800 ha more than the 2,300 million ha planted last season.

The figures show that producers intend to plant 1,432 million ha to white maize, which is 133 500 ha (10,28%) more than in the previous season. In the case of yellow maize, the expected plantings are 1,087 million ha, which is 85 300 ha (8,51%) more than in the previous season.

In the case of sunflower seed, the expected area planted is estimated at 538 500 ha, which is 4,49% or 23 150 ha more than the 515 350 ha planted last season.

The intended plantings of soybeans shows an increase of 2,05% or 15 000 ha compared to the previous season – from 730 500 ha to 745 500 ha.

The expected plantings of groundnuts will increase by 139,40% or 27 950 ha, from 20 050 ha to 48 000 ha.

The intended plantings of sorghum is expected to decrease by 14,65% or 7 400 ha to 43 100 ha, compared to the previous season.

The expected plantings of dry beans is estimated at 52 500 ha, which is 11,47% or 6 800 ha less than in the previous season.

Please note that the preliminary area planted estimate for summer grains for 2020 will be released on 29 January 2020.

Produsente se voorneme om somergewasse te plant is gebaseer op die resultate van 'n nie-ewekansige opname onderneem deur die Direktoraat: Statistiek en Ekonomiese Analise van die Departement van Landbou, Bosbou en Visserye en weerspieël die situasie teen die middel van Oktober 2019.

Volgens die resultate van die opname, is kommersiële produsente van voorneme om 2,519 miljoen ha mielies vir 2020 te plant, wat 9,51% of 218 800 ha meer is as die 2,300 miljoen ha aangeplant verlede seisoen.

Die syfers toon dat produsente van voorneme is om 1,432 miljoen ha witmielies aan te plant, wat 133 500 ha (10,28%) meer is as in die vorige seisoen. In die geval met geelmielies is die verwagte aanplantings 1,087 miljoen ha, wat 85 300 ha (8,51%) meer is as in die vorige seisoen.

In die geval van sonneblomsaad word die verwagte aanplantings beraam op 538 500 ha, wat 4,49% of 23 150 ha meer is as die 515 350 ha aangeplant verlede seisoen.

Die voorgenome sojaboon-aanplantings toon 'n toename van 2,05% of 15 000 ha, in vergelyking met die vorige seisoen – vanaf 730 500 ha tot 745 500 ha.

Die verwagte aanplantings van grondbone gaan toeneem met 139,40% of 27 950 ha, van 20 050 ha tot 48 000 ha.

Die voorgenome aanplantings van sorghum sal na verwagting afneem met 14,65% of 7 400 ha na 43 100 ha, in vergelyking met die vorige seisoen.

Die verwagte aanplantings van droëbone word beraam op 52 500 ha, wat 11,47% of 6 800 ha minder is as in die vorige seisoen.

Neem asseblief kennis dat die voorlopige oppervlakteskatting vir somergewasse vir 2020 op 29 Januarie 2020 vrygestel sal word.

Area estimate and ninth production forecast (2019) Oppervlakte- en negende produksieskatting

Summer field crops – 2019

Commercial maize: The size of the expected commercial maize crop has been set at 11,186 million tons, which is 0,95% or 105 090 tons more than the previous forecast of 11,081 million tons. The area estimate for maize is 2,301 million ha, while the expected yield is 4,86 t/ha.

The estimated maize crop is 11% smaller than the 2018 crop. The three main maize producing areas, namely the Free State, Mpumalanga and North West provinces are expected to produce 80% of the 2019 crop.

The area estimate for white maize is 1,298 million ha and for yellow maize the area estimate is 1,002 million ha.

The production forecast of white maize remained unchanged at 5,538 million tons. The yield for white maize is 4,27 t/ha. In the case of yellow maize the production forecast is 5,648 million tons, which is 1,90% or 105 090 tons more than the 5,543 million tons of the previous forecast. The yield for yellow maize is 5,64 t/ha.

Sunflower seed: The production forecast for sunflower seed remained unchanged at 680 940 tons. The area estimate for sunflower seed is 515 350 ha, while the expected yield is 1,32 t/ha.

The preliminary area planted to maize in the non-commercial agricultural sector is estimated at 296 000 ha, which represents a decrease of 5,98%, compared to the 314 835 ha of the previous season. The expected maize crop for this sector is 549 180 tons, which is 7,54% less than the 593 975 tons of last season. It is important to note that about 43% of the maize produced in the non-commercial sector, is planted in the Eastern Cape, followed by KwaZulu-Natal with 27%.

Die voorlopige oppervlakte beplant met mielies in die nie-kommersiële landbou-sektor word geskat op 296 000 ha, wat 'n afname van 5,98% verteenwoordig in vergelyking met die 314 835 ha van die vorige seisoen. Die verwagte mielie-oes van dié sektor is 549 180 ton, wat 7,54% minder is as die 593 975 ton van die vorige seisoen. Dit is belangrik om daarop te let dat ongeveer 43% van die mielies wat geproduseer word in die nie-kommersiële sektor, in die Oos-Kaap geplant word, gevolg deur KwaZulu-Natal met 27%.
