Winter Grain Shatters Previous Records

November 19, 2020

Well, the Western Cape is in full expectation of a winter grain harvest on a massive scale. The thought alone of grain and gain can get ones heart go bumpity bump to market we come. Hopeful that its going to be a good-good year.

Can you imagine, all I feel right now is the hand of Providence, after the long drought and looming of day zero in water supply, a bumper harvest of winter grain, barley and canola is on the way. Isn’t this the stuff of Fairy Tales, Balm of Gilead?

The Western Cape is expecting one of the biggest winter grain, barley and canola harvests in recent history, “shattering previous records”, agriculture MEC Ivan Meyer said on Wednesday.

The bumper harvest would assist the economic recovery of agriculture in the province after many years of drought, he said.

Meyer unveiled the forecast after visiting Agri Dwala, a grain enterprise which is 100% owned and operated by farmworkers turned farmers, in Napier in the Overberg.


Somebody is doing something right with God by their side. Warm hugs to the farming community in the Western Cape.

  1. Amen! The harvest is plentiful..the workers are few. Great news of the wheat and canola harvest. Perhaps an image of the other harvests in faith to come. Coincidentally harvests of wheat and canola in some regions in the world suffered due to too much rain near harvest time. Amazing how balance comes in to fill a void. Loved post. Thank you🌱

    • Yes, it’s such a wonderful report. Oh, so the drought contributed to the good harvest. ‘Balance comes in to fill in a void’ ….yes, unfolding before our very eyes. Thank you too🍃
