Japan: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   JA2022-0024

FAS Tokyo projects Japan’s overall demand for feed grain to remain robust in MY2021/22 and MY2022/23 as livestock production expands. FAS Tokyo anticipates corn imports to decrease in MY2021/22 and MY2022/23 as feed millers increase the ratio of low-cost rice at the expense of corn in compound feed. FAS Tokyo estimates reduced food wheat imports for MY2021/2022 as Japan’s contracting population and declining per capita wheat consumption, coupled with increasing domestic production, limits demand for imported wheat. FAS Tokyo projects an increase in MY2021/22 and MY2022/23 rice consumption as growing rice for feed consumption outpaces declines in table rice consumption. The Black Sea region is not a significant supplier of grain and feed to Japan.
