Tractor sales, rainfall forecasts point to bumper summer crops for South Africa in the 2021/22 season

Tractor sales, rainfall forecasts point to bumper summer crops for South Africa in the 2021/22 season

The weather conditions in the build-up to the 2021/2022 summer season continue to paint a constructive picture for agriculture. Last month, the SA Weather Service hinted at another La Niña season, albeit somewhat weaker than in the 2020/2021 summer season. Such a favourable weather forecast means there is likely to be above average rainfall over most regions of SA. Global weather forecasters such as the International Research Institute for Climate and Society echo the SA Weather Service’s prediction. Importantly, from September 2021 to January 2022 the probability of La Niña is more than 50%.
