AMIS Crops: World Supply-Demand Outlook

The past month was characterized by unseasonal weather in some major growing areas and by geopolitical tensions in the Black Sea region. While these developments had little impact on supply and demand in the current season (2013/14), they may affect crops to be harvested in the coming months, heightening the uncertainty surrounding markets in 2014/15. Based on the latest indications, although wheat production is anticipated to fall in 2014, world supplies would remain abundant. Availabilities in 2014 are also anticipated to be ample in the rice and maize markets, sustained by higher production and large stocks. As for soybeans, production prospects in Brazil have been scaled down following unfavourable weather, but global supplies still appear sufficient to meet the anticipated demand.
