Record World Wheat Production Gets Bigger This Month
ERS, November 18, 2004
World wheat production is projected to reach 616.9 million tons, up 1.1 million this month. The average world wheat yield in 2004/05 is projected to reach a record 2.84 tons per hectare, up .02 ton this month due to increased yields in Argentina, Brazil, the EU-25, and Russia. Harvested area was reduced for Algeria and Australia, with other area changes mostly offsetting, leaving global area down almost 1 million hectares this month.
Although most wheat in the EU-25 was harvested last summer, late-season harvest statistics which were published recently, boosted production estimates for France, Spain, the Czech Republic, and the UK. While area estimates remained nearly unchanged this month, better-than-expected yields were reported, boosting EU-25 production 1.25 million tons to 134.5 million. Russia’s 2004/05 wheat production increased 1.0 million tons to 44.5 million. Both area and yield increased. Exceptionally mild weather for harvesting spring wheat in Siberia resulted in lower-than-normal harvest losses. Official harvest data also confirmed excellent yields in the southern winter wheat region.
Argentina’s wheat production forecast increased 0.5 million tons to 15.0 million tons as growing conditions in key parts of southern Buenos Aires province were favorable during critical reproductive and filling growth stages, boosting yield prospects. Brazil’s production prospects were increased 0.3 million tons to 5.8 million because the seasonal arrival of heavy rains was late enough to limit harvest losses.
Partly offsetting the above-mentioned increases in wheat production were reductions for Australia, Canada, and Algeria. Algeria reported less wheat area and better yields than expected, with the area reduction more than offsetting higher yields, reducing production 0.3 million tons to 2.6 million. Canada continues to face problems harvesting wheat, with a cold, wet fall leaving a larger-than-normal percent of the crop unharvested as winter set in. Production was reduced 0.5 million tons this month to 24.0 million.
In Australia below-average rains across most growing regions have limited yield potential and caused some wheat to be harvested for hay instead of grain.
Production is projected down 1 million tons this month to 22.5 million. However, most of the decline in production was offset by a 0.8-million-ton increase in beginning stocks reported by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. Domestic use of the large 2003/04 wheat crop was less than expected.
