AMIS Crops: World Supply-Demand Outlook
While possible slowing down of grain exports from Ukraine because of escalated geopolitical tensions is a concern in the short term, bumper crops in several major producing countries are likely to boost supplies and to result in much higher world stocks in 2014 for maize, wheat, rice and soybean. The early outlook for wheat crops to be harvested in 2014 is positive. The soybean supply situation remains favourable even if conditions in South America deteriorated in recent weeks due to adverse weather.
