Serbia: Grain Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   RB2021-0002

Very high temperatures starting in May and low precipitation did not have a negative effect on wheat and barley production in Serbia, while corn yield will be reduced by at least 20 percent. In the second week of July most Serbian farmers had completed this year's wheat harvest. The wheat planting area for MY2021/22 is estimated at 600,000 Ha. Overall, production is estimated to be a record high of 3.4 MMT, which represents a 26 percent increase compared to MY2020/21. With domestic consumption of nearly 1.8 MMT, Serbia is estimated to have 1.7 MMT of wheat available for export in MY2021/22. Due to the summer drought corn production is projected to be around 6 MMT, 2 MMT lower than last year. However, overall production will meet domestic demand and allow for exports of 1.6 MMT of corn.

South Africa had an excellent start to the 2021/22 MY, with carry-over soil moisture and widespread rains that led corn producers to start plantings two to four weeks earlier than usual. Excessive rainfall during December to early January caused damage to planted crops in some areas that could impact crop size, although the extent will only become clear over the next few months.

Canada: Grain and Feed Update

Canada’s wheat marketing year 2021/22 was defined by drought, fires, atmospheric rivers, and the resilience of Canada’s rail transportation sector. Canadian wheat export volumes are down 37 percent (August to November 2021) from the previous year, though wheat exports by value are 95 percent of the value earned the previous year, due to strong global prices.
