WANDILE SIHLOBO: Weather set to play ball in new agricultural season
Higher rains are forecast until February 2023, covering the cultivation to pollination stages
There are convincing signals pointing to another favourable agricultural season for SA in 2022/2023.
In its Seasonal Climate Watch report last week the SA Weather Service highlighted that “the El Niño-Southern Oscillation is in a La Niña state, and forecasts indicate that it will likely remain in this state during the remainder of 2022 and early 2023. A La Niña event usually has the strongest impact on rainfall during the midsummer months. With the continued strengthening of the La Niña event, there is a high chance that it will have its usual effect on SA, generally for above-normal rainfall.”..
