Jordan: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

FAS Amman forecasts Jordan’s wheat production in marketing year (MY) 2018/19 (July-June) at 20,000 metric tons (MT), largely unchanged from the USDA official MY 2016/17 estimate. Wheat imports in MY 2018/19 are forecast to reach 1.1 million metric tons, unchanged from the MY 2017/18 estimate. Romania remains Jordan’s main wheat supplier. Commencing February 1, 2018, Jordan is replacing its decades-long bread subsidy program with targeted assistance; setting new bread prices in the process. Post forecasts corn imports in MY 2018/19 to drop to 800,000 MT, down by 200,000 MT from the MY 2017/18 estimate. U.S. corn exports to Jordan in CY 2017 total $26.3 million (up 143 percent). In April 2017, thanks to post’s intervention the rejection of two U.S. corn shipments (60,000 MT - $12 million) were overturned. Post forecasts rice imports in MY 2018/19 at 200,000 MT, down 10,000 MT from the MY 2017/18 estimate. Imports of U.S. rice at 100,000 MT (off by 10,000 MT), enjoy a 50 percent of market share.

South Africa: Grain and Feed Update

South Africa had an excellent start to the 2021/22 MY, with carry-over soil moisture and widespread rains that led corn producers to start plantings two to four weeks earlier than usual. Excessive rainfall during December to early January caused damage to planted crops in some areas that could impact crop size, although the extent will only become clear over the next few months.

Canada: Grain and Feed Update

Canada’s wheat marketing year 2021/22 was defined by drought, fires, atmospheric rivers, and the resilience of Canada’s rail transportation sector. Canadian wheat export volumes are down 37 percent (August to November 2021) from the previous year, though wheat exports by value are 95 percent of the value earned the previous year, due to strong global prices.
