Algeria: Grain and Feed Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   AG2022-0005

The Algerian Minister of Agriculture forecasts Algerian grain production to reach 3 to 3.2 million metric tons (MMT) in MY2022/23. This is an increase from last marketing year and supports the Algerian policy to increase domestic production. USDA’s crop explorer’s Accumulated Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) chart shows vegetation conditions remaining within the Minima/Maxima monthly standard for the region and within the normal average in the three regions of Algeria. The Minister of Agriculture stated that Algeria has sufficient wheat reserves for the next ten months, although the Algerian Office of Cereals (OAIC) continues to purchase wheat on the international market.
