Ethiopia: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   ET2021-0008

MY 2021/22 wheat production forecast at a record of 5.18 million metric tons, while corn is projected to 8.63 million metric tons due to expected progress by the Government of Ethiopia (GOE) in supplying inputs, and with the assumption of good weather conditions in the main grain producing areas. Wheat imports are expected to continue in the same pattern as in previous years. Public measures put in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 have also had a negative impact on food availability, food prices, income, and food expenditures. Desert locust infestation and COVID-19 remain potential challenges in the coming production year, however efforts will be taken by the GOE to mitigate potential impacts on agricultural production in the year to come.
