Pakistan: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   PK2024-0003
Given record area and prospects for good yields, wheat production in 2024/25 is forecast to be a record 28.8 million tons. Due to an anticipated increase in area, 2024/25 rice production is also forecast to set a record. Meanwhile, with higher returns for other crops, corn area and output are forecast to decrease. Due to the pace of imports through February 2024, the 2023/24 wheat import forecast is increased to 3.3 million tons. Rice exports in 2024/25 are forecast to fall from the record 2023/24 levels as the global market conditions favoring Pakistan’s rice exports are unlikely to be sustained into 2025.
