Algeria Wheat and Barley 2004
USDA, April 9, 2004
For this year, crops throughout the country have been able to make a good start. Early plant development has progressed well. Should good conditions continue, the 2004 crop harvest could be very good and may even exceed 3 MMT all grains included as this year’s crop, which is the highest since 1996.

A good rainfall and the application of the Agricultural Development Plan (PNDA) generated this positive effect on production. As reported previously, the Ministry of Agriculture initiated the PNDA in 2000 to better manage occasions of drought and launch the sector again after a long stagnation. This program represents an ambitious plan of farmland conversion. Grains production is focused in the most productive regions (eastern and central plains) with rainfall between 450 - 800 mm.

Since privatization in the wheat sector in 1998, 250 private flourmills have begun operations. Despite this increased demand, high local production and high world wheat prices are discouraging imports of wheat in MY 2003. With another good crop expected this year, imports are expected decline again in MY 2004. Imports from the U.S., however, should remain relatively constant, thanks at least in part to usage of GSM-102.

Barley imports, which are exclusively, imported from Europe and Eastern Europe because of the proximity and low freight costs, decreased in MY 2003 as of higher local production as well as international high prices.

Because of the good crop this year and availability of stocks, the GOA announced a decrease in imports of grains for 2004. Imports of corn decreased in 2002 and 2003 due to good crops and availability of pasture from one side and the increase of the world market price in the other side. The National Office for Livestock Feed (ONAB) has decreased its imports because of competition with the private sector. Some feed manufacturers and importers have expressed their interest in the Facility Guarantee Program (introduced for Algeria for FY 2004, at a level of $10 million) to finance some investments in the animal feed manufacture and storage facilities.
