REGIONAL REVIEW: FALLING SHORT IN GRAIN PRODUCTION

"Better yields of sorghum in Nigeria have resulted
from increased private sector partnership with farmers," according to the attaché. "As industrial demand
for sorghum continues to increase, more users are expected to increase their partnerships with farmers, providing them farming inputs such as chemicals and improved seeds, storage and processing facilities, training on better farm management techniques, as well as
funding through some out-grower arrangements."
Sub-Saharan Africa's total grains imports in 201819 are forecast by the IGC at 29.4 million tonnes, up
from 27.6 million the year before. The leading importer is Nigeria, which will import 5.6 million tonnes of
grain in 2018-19, up from 5.5 million. It is followed
by Kenya, which will import 3.3 million tonnes, up
from 3.2 million, Sudan, which will import 2.8 million
tonnes, up from 2.7 million, and South Africa, which
will import an unchanged 2.1 million tonnes.
Among the countries in the region, only South Africa
is listed by the IGC as a notable exporter. It is forecast to send an unchanged 2.6 billion tonnes abroad in
2018-19.
