Jordan: Grain and Feed Annual
In MY2017/18 wheat imports are forecast to reach 1.3 MMT. Barley consumption is expected to decrease by eight percent to 845 TMT, as ranchers reduce their herds due to a slowdown in demand of their prized “awasi” sheep in the Gulf countries. MY2017/18, corn imports are forecast to drop to 600,000 MT, as the poultry industry undergoes a painful correction. U.S. corn and rice will each supply 100,000 MT.
