Ethiopia: Grain and Feed Annual
Wheat production in Ethiopia for 2022/23 projected at a record level of 5.7 million MT while corn forecasted to 10.2 million MT. The Government of Ethiopia (GOE) has identified top priorities that can increase production and productivity of cereals through small and large-scale irrigation development, financing agricultural inputs, encouraging cluster farming, and reducing post-harvest loss. The ethnic conflict and security situation which has extended from Tigray down to Amhara and Afar has made farming activities very challenging. Russia’s war in Ukraine may also affect wheat supplies in Ethiopia that depend on those two nations for commercial wheat purchase.
