Russia: Grain and Feed Annual

Assuming average weather conditions during the growing season, FAS/Moscow forecasts Russia’s 2015 grain and pulses production at 92 million metric tons (MMT), an 11 percent decrease from the crop in 2014 but still higher than the previous five-year average of 84.5 MMT. Overall the MY 2015/16 forecast by crop is: wheat - 53 MMT (6 MMT lower than last year but still higher than the 5-years average); barley - 16.5 MMT (3.5 MMT less than in 2014); 10 MT of corn (1 MMT less than in 2014); 3 MMT of rye; 5 MMT of oats; 0.68 MMT of milled rice (1.05 MMT in rough weight); and 3.6 MMT of other grains and pulses. Grain exports for MY 2015/16 are forecast at over 25 MMT, just 2 MMT less than the estimated 27 MMT’s in exports in 2014/15.
