MY 2024/25 wheat imports are anticipated to reach 1.3 million metric tons (MT) as rising incomes and growth in the tourism and hospitality sectors increase demand for wheat products. Rice production for MY 2024/25 is anticipated to increase by 115,000 MT due to higher area harvested as some farmers switch from corn to rice, however yields will likely be negatively impacted by an outbreak of bacterial leaf blight.
