  • While the Southern African Regional Climate Outlook Forum (SARCOF) released positive forecasts for  both the October to December (OND) and January to March (JFM) periods, the Zimbabwe National Climate Outlook Forum (NACOF) forecasts higher chances of normal to below-normal rainfall in the south and western parts of the country during the JFM period. 

  • Markets are fully supplied with a variety of cereals across the country, including the traditionally cereal deficit areas in the south. National average prices for   maize grain remain stable at $0.29/kg and have decreased by 11 percent compared to two year average.
