SUMMER CROPS / SOMERGEWASSE


29 AUGUST/AUGUSTUS 2017

AREA ESTIMATE AND SEVENTH PRODUCTION FORECAST / OPPERVLAKTE EN SEWENDE PRODUKSIESKATTING

Summer field crops – 2017

Commercial maize: The size of the expected com­mercial maize crop has been set at 16,413 million tons, which is 2,78% or 444 175 tons more than the previous forecast of 15,969 million tons. It is the largest maize crop produced in the history of SA. The area estimate for maize is 2,629 million ha, while the expected yield is 6,24 t/ha – also the highest yield ever.

The three main maize producing areas, namely the Free State, Mpumalanga and North West provinces are expected to produce 83% of the 2017 crop.

The area estimate for white maize is 1,643 million ha and for yellow maize the area estimate is 985 500 ha.

The production forecast of white maize is 9,654 million tons, which is 1,54% or 146 500 tons more than the 9,507 million tons of the previous forecast. The yield for white maize is 5,88 t/ha. In the case of yellow maize the production forecast is 6,760 million tons, which is 4,61% or 297 675 tons more than the 6,462 million tons of the previous forecast. The yield for yellow maize is 6,86 t/ha.

Sunflower seed: The production forecast for sun­flower seed showed an increase of 5,85% or 48 125 tons to 870 095 tons. The area estimate for sun­flower seed is 635 750 ha, while the expected yield is 1,37 t/ha.

Other crops: The production forecast for soy­beans, however, declined by 1,79% or 24 000 tons, from 1,340 million tons to 1,316 million tons. The estimated area planted to soybeans is 573 950 ha and the expected yield is 2,29 t/ha.

The expected groundnut crop remained un­changed at 90 550 tons. The area estimate is 56 000 ha and the expected yield is 1,62 t/ha.

The production forecast for sorghum also remained unchanged at 151 335 tons, whilst the area estimate for sorghum is 42 350 ha. The expected yield is 3,57 t/ha.

In the case of dry beans, the production forecast is 68 525 tons, the same as the previous forecast. The area estimate of dry beans is 45 050 ha, with an expected yield of 1,52 t/ha.


Please note that the final production estimate for summer field crops for 2017 will be released on 28 September 2017.

Somergewasse – 2017

Kommersiële mielies: Die grootte van die ver­wagte kommersiële mielie-oes is op 16,413 miljoen ton gestel, wat 2,78% of 444 175 ton meer is as die vorige skatting van 15,969 miljoen ton. Dit is die grootste mielie-oes nog geproduseer in die geskie­denis van SA. Die skatting van die oppervlakte onder mielies is 2,629 miljoen ha, terwyl die verwagte op­brengs 6,24 t/ha is – ook die hoogste opbrengs ooit.

Die drie belangrikste mielieproduserende gebiede, naamlik die Vrystaat, Mpumalanga en Noordwes provinsies, gaan na verwagting 83% van die 2017-oes produseer.

Die oppervlak onder witmielies is 1,643 miljoen ha en vir geelmielies is die oppervlak 985 500 ha.

Die produksieskatting van witmielies is 9,654 miljoen ton, wat 1,54% of 146 500 ton meer is as die 9,507 miljoen ton van die vorige skatting. Die opbrengs van witmielies is 5,88 t/ha. In die geval van geelmielies is die produksieskatting 6,760 miljoen ton, wat 4,61% of 297 675 ton meer is as die 6,462 miljoen ton van die vorige skatting. Die opbrengs van geelmielies is 6,86 t/ha.

Sonneblomsaad: Die produksieskatting vir sonne­blomsaad het op 'n styging van 5,85% of 48 125 ton gedui, na 870 095 ton. Die oppervlakteskatting vir sonneblomsaad is 635 750 ha, terwyl die verwagte opbrengs 1,37 t/ha is.

Ander gewasse: Die produksieskatting van soja­bone het egter met 1,79% of 24 000 ton afge­neem, van 1,340 miljoen ton tot 1,316 miljoen ton. Die geskatte oppervlakte beplant met sojabone is 573 950 ha en die verwagte opbrengs is 2,29 t/ha.

Die verwagte grondbone-oes is onveranderd ge­laat op 90 550 ton. Die oppervlakteskatting is 56 000 ha, terwyl die verwagte opbrengs 1,62 t/ha is.

Die produksieskatting van sorghum is ook onver­anderd gelaat op 151 335 ton, terwyl die opper­vlakteskatting vir sorghum 42 350 ha is. Die ver­wagte opbrengs is 3,57 t/ha.

In die geval van droëbone is die produksieskatting 68 525 ton, dieselfde as die vorige skatting. Die oppervlakte beplant met droëbone is 45 050 ha, en die verwagte opbrengs is 1,52 t/ha.


Neem asseblief kennis dat die finale produksie­skat­ting vir somergewasse vir 2017, op 28 September 2017 vrygestel sal word.

Inligting is beskikbaar op die internet by:

Maize / Mielies 366 650 731 000 266 130 435 740 +67.76

The area planted to maize in the non-commercial agricultural sector is estimated at 366 650 ha, which represents an increase of 37,77%, compared to the 266 130 ha of the previous season. The expected maize crop for this sector is 731 000 tons, which is 67,76% more than the 435 740 tons of last season. It is important to note that about 64% of the maize produced in the non-commercial sector, is planted in the Eastern Cape.

Die oppervlakte beplant met mielies in die nie-kommersiële landbou-sektor word geskat op 366 650 ha, wat 'n toename van 37,77% verteenwoordig in vergelyking met die 266 130 ha van die vorige seisoen. Die verwagte mielie-oes van dié sektor is 731 000 ton, wat 67,76% meer is as die 435 740 ton van die vorige seisoen. Dit is belangrik om daarop te let dat ongeveer 64% van die mielies wat geproduseer word in die nie-kommersiële sektor, in die Oos-Kaap geplant word.

REVISED AREA PLANTED AND FIRST PRODUCTION FORECAST OF WINTER CROPS / HERSIENE OPPERVLAKTE- EN EERSTE PRODUKSIESKATTING VAN WINTERGEWASSE

Winter cereal crops

The expected production of wheat is 1,604 million tons, which is 16,04% or 306 300 tons less than the previous seasons' crop of 1,910 million tons, whilst the expected yield is 3,34 t/ha.

The expected production in the Western Cape is 861 250 tons (54%), which is 236 950 tons less than the 1,098 million tons produced in the previous season. In the Northern Cape, the expected pro­duction is 285 000 tons (18%), which is 19 000 tons more than the previous seasons' crop of 266 000 tons. In the Free State, 182 000 tons (11%) is expected to be produced – 126 460 tons less than the 308 460 tons produced in the previous season.

The area estimate for wheat was revised to 479 600 ha, which is 19 250 ha less than the 498 850 ha of the previous forecast. An estimated 325 000 ha or 68% is planted in the Western Cape, 70 000 ha or 15% in the Free State and 38 000 ha or 8% in the Northern Cape.

Other crops: The production forecast for malting barley is 265 990 tons, which is 25,07% or 89 010 tons less than the previous seasons' crop of 355 000 tons. The area planted is estimated at 91 250 ha, while the expected yield is 2,91 t/ha.

The expected canola crop is 109 200 tons, which is 4,0% or 4 200 tons more than the previous seasons' crop of 105 000 tons. The area estimate for canola is 84 000 ha, with an expected yield of 1,30 t/ha.


Please note that the second production forecast for winter cereals for 2017 will be released on 28 Sep­tember 2017.
