SUMMER CROPS / SOMERGEWASSE


26 MARCH / MAART 2019

REVISED AREA ESTIMATE AND SECOND PRODUCTION FORECAST / HERSIENE OPPERVLAKTE- EN TWEEDE PRODUKSIESKATTING

Summer field crops – 2019

Commercial maize: The size of the expected commercial maize crop has been set at 10,561 million tons, which is 0,48% or 50 690 tons more than the previous forecast of 10,510 million tons. The area estimate for maize was slightly adjusted downward by 1 300 ha to 2,301 million ha, while the expected yield is 4,59 t/ha.

The estimated maize crop is 16% smaller than the 2018 crop. The three main maize producing areas, namely the Free State, Mpumalanga and North West provinces are expected to produce 79% of the 2019 crop.

The area estimate for white maize was increased by 200 ha to 1,298 million ha and for yellow maize the area estimate was decreased by 1 500 ha to 1,002 million ha.

The production forecast of white maize is 5,221 million tons, which is 1,31% or 67 640 tons more than the 5,153 million tons of the previous forecast. The yield for white maize is 4,02 t/ha. In the case of yellow maize the production forecast is 5,340 million tons, which is 0,32% or 16 950 tons less than the 5,357 million tons of the previous forecast. The yield for yellow maize is 5,33 t/ha.

Please note that information from the objective yield survey by the ARC for the Mpumalanga province will be available in April 2019; and for the Free State and North West provinces in May 2019. The current yield figures are mainly obtained from producers in the different provinces.

Other summer crops

Sunflower seed: The production forecast for sun­flower seed remained unchanged at 563 590 tons. The area estimate for sunflower seed is 515 350 ha, while the expected yield is 1,09 t/ha.

Other crops

The production forecast for soybeans also remained unchanged at 1,276 million tons. The estimated area planted to soybeans is 730 500 ha and the expected yield is 1,75 t/ha.

The expected groundnut crop remained unchanged at 20 100 tons. For groundnuts, the area estimate is 20 050 ha, with an expected yield of 1,00 t/ha.

The production forecast for sorghum is 163 400 tons, which is 2,97% or 5 000 tons less than the 168 400 tons of the previous forecast. The area estimate for sorghum is 50 500 ha and the expected yield is 3,24 t/ha.

In the case of dry beans, the production forecast remained unchanged at 70 950 tons. The area estimate of dry beans is 59 300 ha, with an expected yield of 1,20 t/ha.


Please note that the third production forecast for summer field crops for 2019 will be released on 25 April 2019.

www.daff.gov.za/daffweb3/Home/Crop-Estimates or:
www.sagis.org.za, as from 14:30 on the date of the relevant meeting of the Crop Estimates Committee.

Somergewasse – 2019

Kommersiële mielies: Die grootte van die ver­wagte kommersiële mielie-oes is op 10,561 miljoen ton gestel, wat 0,48% of 50 690 ton meer is as die vorige skatting van 10,510 miljoen ton. Die skatting van die oppervlakte onder mielies is effens afwaarts aangepas met 1 300 ha na 2,301 miljoen ha, terwyl die verwagte opbrengs 4,59 t/ha is.

Die geskatte mielie-oes is 16% kleiner as die 2018-oes. Die drie belangrikste mielieproduserende ge­biede, naamlik die Vrystaat, Mpumalanga en Noord­wes provinsies, gaan na verwagting 79% van die 2019-oes produseer.

Die oppervlak onder witmielies is met 200 ha verhoog na 1,298 miljoen ha en vir geelmielies is die oppervlak verlaag met 1 500 ha na 1,002 miljoen ha.

Die produksieskatting van witmielies is 5,221 miljoen ton, 1,31% of 67 640 ton meer as die 5,153 miljoen ton van die vorige skatting. Die opbrengs van witmielies is 4,02 t/ha. In die geval van geelmielies is die produksieskatting 5,340 miljoen ton, wat 0,32% of 16 950 ton minder is as die 5,357 miljoen ton van die vorige skatting. Die opbrengs van geelmielies is 5,33 t/ha.

Neem kennis dat inligting van die objektiewe opbrengs-opname van die LNR vir die Mpumalanga provinsie, in April 2019 gerapporteer word en vir die Vrystaat en Noordwes provinsies in Mei 2019. Die huidige opbrengs syfers is hoofsaaklik verkry vanaf produsente in die verskillende provinsies.

Ander somergewasse:

Sonneblomsaad: Die produksieskatting vir sonne­blomsaad is onveranderd gelaat op 563 590 ton. Die oppervlakteskatting vir sonneblomsaad is 515 350 ha, terwyl die verwagte opbrengs 1,09 t/ha is.

Ander gewasse

Die produksieskatting van sojabone is ook onver­anderd gelaat op 1,276 miljoen ton. Die geskatte oppervlakte beplant van sojabone is 730 500 ha en die verwagte opbrengs is 1,75 t/ha.

Die verwagte grondbone-oes is onveranderd gelaat op 20 100 ton. Vir grondbone is die oppervlakteskatting 20 050 ha, terwyl the verwagte opbrengs 1,00 t/ha is.

Die produksieskatting van sorghum is 163 400 ton, wat 2,97% of 5 000 ton minder is as die 168 400 ton van die vorige skatting. Die oppervlakteskatting vir sorghum is 50 500 ha, en die verwagte opbrengs is 3,24 t/ha.

In die geval van droëbone is die produksieskatting onveranderd gelaat op 70 950 ton. Die oppervlakte beplant met droëbone is 59 300 ha, en die verwagte opbrengs is 1,20 t/ha.


Neem asseblief kennis dat die derde produksie­skatting vir somergewasse vir 2019, op 25 April 2019 vrygestel sal word.
