Nigeria: Grain and Feed Update
Nigeria wheat millers are diversifying their sources of wheat import due to the Russia-Ukraine crisis. FAS Lagos (Post) estimates wheat imports for MY 2022/23 at 6 million metric ton (MMT), a 3 percent reduction from last year’s Post estimate. Meanwhile, insurgency and floods in the northern part of the country greatly impacted corn and rice production respectively. Corn production is estimated to decrease by 5 percent (12.1MMT) and rice production is estimated to decrease by 7 percent (7.8 MMT) in MY2022/23.
