Iraq: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   IZ2023-0002

Since December 2022, rainfall across most of Iraq has been positive, expected to result in favorable yields and increased production for winter crops wheat and barley, with rice expected to rebound this summer for marketing year (MY) 2023/24. Despite an increase in production, the Government of Iraq (GOI) will continue to remain a significant importer of rice, wheat, and flour to supply citizens with subsidized food from the Public Distribution System (PDS), supported by the food security law 2/2022. Meanwhile, feed grain production and consumption will continue to increase as population, consumer demand, and preference for poultry increases.
