Indonesia: Grain and Feed Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Indonesia is transitioning from 2015’s El Nino-induced dry conditions to the wet weather associated with a mild La Nina phenomenon. Dryland corn and rice planting area has thus expanded at the expense of soybean, sugar, and tobacco. First crop 2016/17 plantings are on-time, with most rice and corn in the ground in October or early November 2016. Rice and corn production is expected to increase due to favorable weather conditions, while imports will slightly decline. Wheat imports are expected to contract to 8.6 MMT in MY 2016/17 following Indonesian limitations on feed-grade wheat imports.
