Moving Towards Self-sufficiency in Oil seed Value chains

South Africa produced a historical-high summer oilseed crop of 2.5 million tons in the 2017/18 MY with a further increase in oilseed production projected for the 2018/19 MY to 2.6 million tons. South Africa demonstrated a positive trend in oilseeds plantings over the past 10 years, mainly driven by investment in soybean processing capacity. As a result, oilseed meal imports are expected to drop from contributing 70 percent to local consumption, 10 years ago, to contributing less than 20 percent to local consumption in the 2018/19 MY
