Morocco's wheat and barley production down
AgAtt forecast for wheat and barley production is revised downward significantly because of a combined smaller than anticipated area planted, and likely lower yields due to the dry weather that prevailed since March 5 throughout Morocco. The relatively hot and dry weather conditions currently prevailing are putting even more stress on the wheat and barley crops throughout the country and are expected to continue to affect yields irreversibly.

As a result, AgAtt revises down its production figures as shown in the table below:

2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 5 Year 2005 Forecast

Average Previous Current Planted Area (1,000 ha)
- Durum Wheat (1) 1,079 977 882 1,093 1,111 1,028 1,000 900
- Wheat (2) 1,823 1,724 1,745 1,896 1,953 1,828 1,900 1,800
TOTAL WHEAT (1)+(2) 2,902 2,701 2,626 2,989 3,064 2,856 2,900 2,700
BARLEY 2,251 2,126 2,002 2,267 2,324 2,194 2,000 2,000
TOTAL AREA PLANTED 5,153 4,827 4,629 5,255 5,388 5,050 4,900 4,700


Production (1,000 MT)
- Durum Wheat (1) 427 1,039 1,032 1,766 2,025 1,258 1,300 900
- Wheat (2) 953 2,278 2,325 3,381 3,515 2,490 2,500 2,000
TOTAL WHEAT (1)+(2) 1,381 3,316 3,357 5,147 5,540 3,748 3,800 2,900
BARLEY 467 1,155 1,669 2,620 2,760 1,734 1,300 1,100
TOTAL PRODUCTION 1,848 4,472 5,026 7,767 8,300 5,482 5,100 4,000

As a result, Morocco total imports of wheat are revised upward and the US share is forecast to be higher since the tariff rate quota for the US wheat under the FTA should be at its maximum i.e. 700,000 MT.
