  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The United States is the main sourcing option for Colombian importers of corn and rice. In 2017, U.S. corn dominated the Colombian market supplying 99.7 percent of imports triggered by trade preferences in the U.S.-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement (CTPA). Corn production will decrease to 1.6 million metric tons (MT) in marketing year (MY) 2018/19, while imports surge to 5.15 million MT. In MY 2018/19, rice imports will increase to 150,000 MT and rough rice production is expected to decrease to 2.4 million MT given low grower prices. In MY 2018/19, wheat production is forecast to 10,000 MT with imports reaching 1.95 million MT.
