  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

FAS Amman forecasts Jordan’s wheat imports in marketing year (MY) 2020/2021 to reach 900,000 metric tons (MT). Post foresees a drop of 100,000 MT in MY 2020/2021 import volumes compared to the earlier U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) official MY 2019/2020 figure of 1 million metric tons. The Ministry of Industry, Trade and Supply is set to slow international wheat purchases for its targeted assistance program. FAS Amman forecasts corn imports in MY 2020/2021 at 500,000 MT, down 600,000 MT or 55 percent lower than the USDA official MY 2020/2021 figure of 1.1 million metric tons. Post attributes the drop in imports to decreased demand for feed corn by Jordan's poultry and dairy sectors. Rice imports in MY 2020/2021 are forecast at 215,000 MT, down 15,000 MT or 6.5 percent lower compared to the USDA official 2019/2020 estimate of 230,000 metric tons.
