  • Wheat production in 2017 revised up slightly; now just marginally (0.3 percent) below the 2016 record. 
  • Utilization in 2017/18 raised further mainly reflecting higher-than-earlier projected industrial use in the EU and feed use in the Russian Federation. 
  • Trade in 2017/18 (July/June) almost unchanged from last month with significant upward adjustment to exports from the Russian Federation nearly offsetting lower anticipated shipments from other exporters, in particular from the EU.
  • Stocks (ending in 2018) slightly down from the previous forecast but still at an all-time high.
