  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   KE2023-0002

FAS/Nairobi forecasts an increase in corn and wheat production in marketing year (MY) 2023/24, to 3.18 million metric tons (MT) and 310,000 MT respectively due to increases in harvested area as farmers respond to high crop prices by planting more wheat and corn. Rice production is forecast to increase due to an expansion of irrigated area following the operationalization of the new Thiba Dam. MY 2022/23 rice imports are expected to reach a record high of 700,000 MT due to a temporary removal of tariffs and high local demand for affordable food staples.
