South Africa could produce an estimated 505 215 tonnes in 2020/21, which is up by 46% from the previous season. This is largely based on favorable weather conditions and increased area plantings.

Due to the 2x alcohol bans that South Africa experienced during the COVID-19 lockdown, there will be less demand domestically which should increase the volumes of barley available to be exported.
