  • Maize production forecast down marginally m/m with lower anticipated harvests in the Russian Federation and the US more than offsetting a significant upward revision in Ukraine.
  • Utilization in 2018/19 scaled down on cuts in feed use in the US and the Russian Federation more than offsetting a raise in the EU.
  • Trade in 2018/19 (July/June) lifted, supported by stronger import demand by several countries; exports from Ukraine much higher than earlier anticipated on the back of record production.
  • Stocks (ending in 2019) unchanged from last month and still 14 percent below their record opening levels; the biggest decreases are expected in China, South America and the US.
