Abstract: This report presents both methodology and results of a medium-term outlook for soybean markets in South Africa, Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique. Soybeans are attractive crops for many economic, social and environmental reasons, and the sector appears to have a promising future in Eastern and Southern Africa. For instance it can improve soils, provide a value added processing activity and offer an alternative crop to be produced by both small holders and commercial farms. Looking the 2026/2027 horizon, this medium-term outlook takes the latest trends, policies and market information into consideration, but remains subject to many uncertainties on upcoming market development, macroeconomics or policy changes.
