SADC Agromet Update Issue 2 - 2015-2016 Season

Date Signed

The rainfall season is off to a slow start across many parts of the region. The south-eastern, central and north-western areas have experienced significant deficits in cumulative rainfall between October and mid-November. In most of these areas, consistent planting rains usually occur in mid-November, although they are normally preceded by light pre-season rains that encourage and facilitate land preparations by farmers in October.
