  • Wheat production in 2018 raised slightly but still well below last year’s record.
  • Utilization in 2018/19 to expand despite a reduction in feed use of wheat. 
  • Trade in 2018/19 (July/June) heading for a small decline though US exports are expected to increase, compensating for lower shipments by other major exporters.
  • Stocks (ending in 2019) revised upwards on higher inventories in Australia and the Russian Federation, but still well below their record high opening levels.
