Tanzania: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

FAS/Dar es Salaam forecasts marketing year (MY) 2019/2020 corn production to increase by 1.8 percent from 2018/2019 due to a promising fertilizer delivery system. Post-harvest loss, ineffective extension services delivery systems, unreliable markets, pests and diseases such as Maize Lethal Necrosis (MLN) and Fall Army Worm (FAW) persist as challenges for corn production in Tanzania. Post forecasts wheat production and harvesting area to remain the same in MY 2019/2020 due to predicted below average long rains in the northern highlands wheat growing areas as reported by Tanzania Meteorological Agency (TMA). U.S. wheat remains unavailable in Tanzania’s market due to high price despite increasing wheat consumption and imports from Canada and others. Tanzania expects a slight increase of rice imports in 2019/2020 due to increased population and human consumption.
