Nigeria: Grain and Feed Annual

FAS Lagos (Post) forecasts Nigeria’s wheat imports in MY 2019/20 at 5.6 MMT, up almost 4 percent compared to MY 2018/19 based on growing food, seed and industrial (FSI) usage. The rise in FSI wheat consumption is attributable to population growth of about 2.54 percent (2015-20), with Nigerians increasingly shifting to consuming greater amounts of wheat-flour based products. Post forecasts Nigeria’s rough rice production in MY 2019/20 at 7.4 MMT, down about three percent or 200,000 MT lower than the MY 2018/19 estimate of 7.6 million metric tons.
