Spain’s total grain production is projected to reach over average levels in MY2018/19, with harvest operations starting later than usual. The strong demand by the export-oriented domestic livestock industry ensures the continuation of the steady pace of grain imports, despite the sizeable crop and the ample pasture supplies. Competitively priced U.S. sorghum has helped Spanish feed compounders’ in the transition until new domestic crop became available.
