Pakistan: Grain and Feed Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   PK2021-0009

The 2021/22 rice production forecast is reduced from 8.2 to 7.9 million tons due to lower-than-average monsoon rains. The rice export estimate for the current marketing year and the forecast for 2021/22 are both lowered due to a shortage of shipping containers, high freight rates, and stiff competition from India. The wheat supply and demand numbers are unchanged. Wheat imports have totaled only 57,000 tons so far this current marketing year, but imports are expected to accelerate in coming months as the Government seeks to replenish stocks.
