Jordan: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

FAS Amman (Post) forecasts Jordan’s wheat imports in MY 2019/20 to stay at 1.1 million metric tons (MMT), a figure largely in line with forecasted consumption rates. Post forecasts Jordan’s corn imports in MY 2019/20 to increase by slightly over 4 percent to 835,000 MT from the USDA official MY 2018/19 estimate of 800,000 metric tons. We anticipate that U.S.-origin corn imports may grow, reaching in MY 2019/20 some 200,000 MT based on competitive pricing and availability now of the GSM-102 Credit Guarantee Program to Jordanian banks. FAS Amman forecast Jordan’s rice imports in MY 2019/20 at 190,000 MT, down 17 percent or 40,000 MT lower from the USDA official MY 2018/19 estimate of 230,000 metric tons.
