  • Wheat 2017 production lifted, now closer to the 2016 record, with increases in Canada and the Russian Federation more than offsetting cuts in several countries, in particular Australia.
  • Utilization in 2017/18 lowered, largely on downward revisions in the Russian Federation.
  • Trade in 2017/18 (July/June) lowered slightly, now representing a small contraction from 2016/17.
  • Stocks (ending in 2018) up sharply from the previous forecast, reflecting upward revisions in the EU and the Russian Federation.
