Turkey: Grain and Feed Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Turkey’s wheat imports during the first six months of marketing year (MY) 2019/20 (from June to November 2019) were almost double last year’s imports during the same period. Turkey’s wheat imports will reach a record level due to continued robust exports of wheat products and domestic production shortages. For MY 2019/20, total barley and corn imports into Turkey are forecast at 700,000 MT and 2.6 MMT, respectively. A high priority of the government due to continued food inflation, Turkey is closely monitoring prices of staple foods like bread and red meat and their relevant input commodities like wheat, flour, and animal feed.
