Japan: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   JA2023-0021

FAS/Tokyo projects reduced corn imports and feed consumption in MY2022/23 due to large outbreaks of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza as well as increased competition from domestic feed rice, followed by a recovery of corn consumption in MY2023/24. Post forecasts strong demand for feed wheat and barley in MY2022/23 and MY2023/24 and for food wheat consumption to gradually recover despite price increases. FAS/Tokyo projects flat rice consumption in MY2022/23 due to strong demand for feed rice offsetting lower table rice demand but forecasts a decrease in MY2023/24 consumption as feed rice production declines.
