Kenya: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   KE2022-0002

Kenya MY2022/23 corn production is forecast at 3.2 million metric tons (MMT), largely unchanged from MY2021/22 due to high fertilizer prices and farmers switching to alternative crops such as sugarcane. Kenya MY2022/23 wheat consumption is expected to rise to 2.25 MMT from 2.2 MMT as tourism and restaurants bounce back from COVID-19 restrictions. Kenya rice production is forecast to increase in MY2022/23 to 90,000 metric tons (MT) from 80,000 MT due to an expansion of the Mwea irrigation scheme following the completion of the Thiba Dam, however the country will remain dependent on imports for the majority of its rice supply.
