FAS Colombo (Post) forecasts Sri Lanka’s market year (MY) 2021/2022 (October-September) rough rice production at 5.12 million metric tons (MMT), up by 121,000 metric tons (MT), and increasing by 2.5 percent compared to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) official MY 2020/2021 figure of 5.0 million metric tons. The increase is due to favorable weather conditions combined with the expansion of government-backed water irrigation schemes; in addition to the state fomenting increased domestic production at the expense of imports. Sri Lanka’s MY 2021/2022 wheat imports are forecast at 1.2 MMT, up by 200,000 MT, an increase of 20 percent above the USDA official 2020/2021 figure of 1.0 million metric tons. Sri Lanka’s main wheat suppliers are Canada, Russia, the United States, Australia, Pakistan, India, and Romania. In 2020, U.S.-origin wheat represented 11 percent of Sri Lanka’s imports.
