July 2022
The main cereal season has ended in the country and national cereal production is forecast at 4 million tonnes, about 4% above the five year average, but almost 20% down from the bumper output of 2021 (FAO). Despite a poor start of the season that necessitated replanting in multiple districts, conducive weather conditions between January to April 2022, in the main cereal producing northern and central regions, reduced the impact of poor rainfall during the first part of the season (October-December 2021) on crop production. However, according to FEWSNET, an unprecedentedly dry start to the agricultural season in Southern Malawi and back-to-back tropical storms significantly impacted crop production, with maize production estimated to be 30 to 50% below the 5-year average.
