Syria Wheat Crop
Wheat production was strong due to sufficient rainfall in production areas during the growing season. The General Establishment for Cereal Processing and Trade (HOBOOB) estimates the crop at 4.7 million MT. Harvested areas were reported by the Ministry of Agriculture and Agrarian Reform at 1.7 million hectares. HOBOOB bought 3.1 million MT from farmers, 5 percent below purchases from the previous crop. For the 2006/2007 crop, rains through January 2005 were below average in general. The final crop size will be determined not by the planted areas, but by the rainfall that will enable the grains to fill up in March - May and by the weather conditions that will prevail during the latter part of the growing season. Based on similar rainfall patterns, post estimates 4.7 million MT for crop year 2006/2007.

Wheat is mainly used for milling into flour for bread production. Smaller quantities are used for bulgur production, and poor quality wheat is used for animal feeding. Approximately 250,000 MT of wheat are expected to be used for planting next season’s crop. Bread consumption is increasing at about three percent, in line with Syria’s population growth. Available milling capacity greatly exceeds the milling requirement for the country.
