Cambodia: Grain and Feed Annual
For marketing year (MY) 2018/2019, Post reduced the estimate for rice harvested area to 3,190 thousand hectares (th. ha) owing to unfavorable weather conditions, but increased production to 9.23 million metric tons (MMT) on yield increases on the harvested acreage. Post forecasts that MY19/20 rice harvested area will not expand and production will increase modestly by one percent over Post’s MY18/19 estimates, to 9.33 MMT, on continued increasing yields. Post estimates corn harvested area and production volume in MY18/19 up over the official USDA estimate to 221 th. ha and 1.05 MMT as farmers keep their expanded acreage from MY17/18 in production and forecasts similar numbers in MY19/20.
