Business Insider reports that recent rain damage to maize fields in some parts of the country may have a knock-on effect on prices, but it is still too early to tell. In a recent report by Grain SA, about 22% of grain farmers in South Africa said they expect more than 60% of their white maize area to be negatively affected by excessive rain. The report draws from a survey conducted by Grain SA with the ‘Crop Estimates Committee’ of the South African Grain Information Service expected to release its latest crop estimates for the maize industry on 27 February.
