Jordan is dependent on grain imports, disruptions to trade will jeopardize food security and stability. The Syrian crisis dramatically increased Jordan's population (set to double by 2047). FAS Amman forecasts wheat production in marketing year (MY) 2019/20 (July-June) at 25,000 metric tons (MT), unchanged from the USDA official figure. This figure is down 5,000 MT compared to the MY 2018/19 number of 30,000 metric tons. Wheat consumption is forecast at 920,000 MT, up by 25,000 MT or 3 percent higher than the MY 2018/19 estimate of 895,000 metric tons. Rice consumption in MY 2019/20 is forecast at 187,000 MT, decreasing 5 percent by 9,000 MT compared to the MY 2018/19 estimate of 196,000 metric tons. Lower rice consumption is due to tight economic conditions. U.S.- origin rice imports forecast at 95,000 MT, account for half of all imports.
