Argentina: Grain and Feed Update
Link to report:
Due to dry conditions, Argentine wheat production for marketing year (MY) 2022/23 is forecast down at 15.5 million metric tons (MMT), 2 MMT lower than the official USDA estimate. As a consequence wheat exports are lowered to 10 MMT. Barley exports for MY 2022/23 are also forecast down at 3 MMT, 500,000 MT lower than official USDA projection as result of lower production and slower farmer selling. Corn exports in MY 2022-23 are projected at 37.5 MMT, 3.5 MMT lower than the official USDA estimate mainly due to a smaller forecast crop. Sorghum exports in MY 2022-23 are forecast at 2.2 million tons, with China being the primary destination.
