Syria reportedly plans to double grain storage capacity
CAIRO, EGYPT — Syria plans to more than double its grain storage capacity to 4 million tonnes by the end of 2010 by building more concrete silos, according to Bloomberg, citing a report by Syria’s state-owned newspaper Ath-Thawra.

Ath-Thawra attributed the expansion report to Antar Farman, director general of General Company for Silos, the state-run operator of Syria’s grain storage facilities, Bloomberg said. Farman was quoted as saying that the country’s storage capacity next year will stand at 1.9 million tonnes.

Syria is a net exporter of wheat and a net importer of maize.

Syria’s wheat production since 2000-01 has averaged 4.5 million tonnes a year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Wheat exports are variable, ranging from 300,000 tonnes in 2001-02 to 1.2 million in 2003-04, while wheat ending stocks in the past four years have averaged about 5 million tonnes.

Maize imports have ranged from about 800,000 tonnes in 2000-01 to nearly 1.6 million in 2004-05.
