  • Maize production forecast for 2019 lowered, with a cut in the forecast for China outweigting a notable increase in Argentina.
  • Utilization in 2019/20 lowered on slower rise of feed and industrial use, especially in Brazil where more supplies are destined for exports. 
  • Trade in 2019/20 (July/June) expected to remain below the estimated record volume in 2018/19 on tighter export availabilities in the US and reduced import demand, especially in the EU.
  • Stocks (ending in 2020) expected to fall well short of their opening levels despite upward revisions in the EU and the US.
