According to the Namibia Agronomic Board none of the countries in Southern Africa produce sufficient wheat to meet their domestic demand. This combined with Namibia needing to import about 90% of its wheat requirement annually has led to a constant deficit, pushing up the domestic prices of wheat by 15% in the 2020/2021 marketing season alone. There is hope though as Loide Uahengo, the manager for Agronomy Market development from the NAB says they are looking into ways to increase wheat production.
