AMIS Crops: World Supply-Demand Outlook
Firmer estimates for crops harvested in northern hemisphere confirm earlier expectation of large production gains and a general improvement in the world supply situation in 2013/14. While early prospects for 2014 wheat crops are favourable, weather developments will be critical not only for wheat but also for southern hemisphere rice and soybean crops being planted. In the Philippines, the recent landfall of typhoon Huiyan had only limited impacts on the main rice crop, as most had been harvested.
