Argentina Increases Wheat Production, Exports Move into New Markets
Argentine wheat exports have almost doubled over the past 5 years as a result of a nearly 50 percent expansion in production. While a third of the export growth went to South American markets, where they have a preferential access and freight advantage, more than a third of the growth has been to non-traditional markets.
Argentine exports to North Africa and the Middle East for the last 5 years are estimated at over 10 mmt compared to 1.8 mmt the previous five years, accounting for more than 20 percent of the total import growth in those areas. With relatively low production costs, Argentina has the potential to expand production and exportable supplies even further.
