South Africa: Increased volumes of grapes expected

South Africa's table grape crop is expected to be up on last season by 4-7%. Last season the country had to deal with adverse weather which affected volumes, this season's volumes are more online with the volumes from the 2012/13 season and will be boosted by new planting coming into production.

According to Rhomona Gounden from SATI, harvesting will begin seven days earlier than normal. the total volume is expected to be between 52.9 and 54.3 million (4.5 equivalent boxes).

A few weeks ago the Orange River Region suffered from hail storms, despite this the volumes are expected to increase from 15 million carton last season to 16.5-16.8 million cartons this year.

An updated second crop estimate will be published early December 2014.
