Guatemala: Grain and Feed Annual
Production for Marketing Year (MY) 2020 is forecast at 2.02 million metric tons (MT), 1 percent above MY2019: a slight increase in area but yields continue at a very low 2.05 MT per hectare (Ha). Contraband corn is estimated at 300,000 MT. Commercial corn accounts for 40 percent of total area harvested, while 60 percent is devoted to subsistence agriculture. Guatemala continues to be a net importer of yellow corn and keeps filling its CAFTA-DR quota for white corn.
