Russia: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   RS2021-0017

Wheat production is projected to decrease 9 percent to 77.5 million metric tons (MMT) in marketing year (MY) 2021/22. Decreased wheat production is projected to more than offset increases in corn and barley production of 6 and 7 percent, respectively, to reduce production of major grains by 5 percent to 118 MMT in MY 2021/22. Lower production and export restrictions are projected to largely be partially offset by higher carry-in stocks resulting in a relatively small reduction in grain exports in MY 2021/22. Post projects MY 2020/21 wheat exports at 40 MMT, barley exports at 3.5 MMT, and corn exports at 4.3 MMT.
