Latvia: Grain and Feed Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   LG2021-0002

Total Latvian wheat, rye, mixed grains, triticale, barley, corn, and oat production in marketing year (MY) 2021/22 is forecast at 3.2 million metric tons (MMT), a 7.4-percent decrease from MY 2020/21. After bumper crops in MY 2020/21, Post anticipates a return to more average production levels for all grains. Chilly spring weather conditions have slowed plant development. In MY 2020/21, Latvian wheat exports will exceed last year’s levels. During first seven months of MY 2020/21, wheat exports reached 2.3 MMT, 19 percent above the previous year. High international grain prices motivated Latvian exporters to increase sales to African and the Middle East in MY 2020/21.
