Morocco: Grain and Feed Annual
For MY 2016/17, Post estimates cereal production at 4.7 million MT, about 58 percent lower than the record harvest in MY 2015/16. The drop in grain production is mainly due to unfavorably dry and hot conditions during crop establishment in most of the production regions, as well as a smaller planted area. With this year’s drought, wheat imports are expected to start earlier in the year. Post estimates total cereal imports for MY 2016/17 will reach 4.6 million MT with wheat imports at 3.9 million MT and barley imports at 0.7 million MT.
