Senegal: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   SG2021-0007

Marketing year (MY) 2021/22 area harvested for rice in Senegal, Guinea, Burkina Faso, and Mali is expected to increase about 9 percent to 3.35 million HA as movement restrictions are eased in Guinea, planted area rebounds from flooding, and financing and input access for farmers increases. MY 2021/22 rice production is forecast at 5.04 MMT, 8.4 percent higher than the previous year assuming good rainfall and low pest pressure. MY 2020/21 area is estimated to decrease 7 percent from the previous year to 3.07 million HA due to movement restrictions in Guinea and Mali, closed borders in Guinea, and flooding in Mali. MY 2020/21 production is estimated to decrease 3.5 percent to 4.65 MMT due to a labor shortage in Guinea and excess rains in Mali that reduced yield. MY 2021/22 and MY 2020/21 rice imports are estimated at 3.06 MMT and 2.98 MMT respectively based on population growth, increased consumption, and expectations of competitive international prices.
