Algeria: Grain and Feed Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   AG2021-0007

Algeria’s Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) by region shows the vegetation index within normal range. However, the satellite image shows dry pockets in the western region, highlands, and some dry areas in the eastern region. The Chief of the Algerian Farmers Union and the Algerian Technical Institute for Field Crops (ITGC) forecast a decline in the grain crop due to a deficit in rainfall. The Algerian Office of Cereals (OAIC) purchased wheat on the international market. For these reasons, Post forecasts an increase in wheat and barley imports.
