Wheat production for crop 2016/17 is forecast at 1.0 million tons, lower than the previous year due to expected low farmer returns. A lower output would negatively affect exports which could drop to 500,000 tons. Corn production for 2016/17 is forecast to drop at 3.5 million tons, with an unchanged harvested area but with a projected lower yield than the one expected for 2015/16. Corn exports are forecast at 2.4 million tons. Despite a lower planted area, rice production is projected to increase at 700,000 tons (rough basis) as more normal weather is expected.
