USDA sees bumper wheat crop for Pakistan
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has forecast that Pakistan will harvest another bumper crop of wheat during the current season which would be slightly lower than the last year's production because of low rain and rise in temperature.

The production is forecast at 21 million metric tons, slightly lower than last year's record production of 21. 6 million metric tons. The dry spell during early in the growing season and rise in temperature during February may lower production slightly below last year. Regardless of these factors, this year's crop is forecast to be the second largest crop harvest on record.

This is due to increased availability of irrigation water, good management practices and an increased application of fertilisers and herbicides.

The 21 million metric tons production forecast represents potential production and assumes no further deterioration in the condition of the crop before the harvest scheduled to begin in the later half of March. An increase in fertiliser use is one important factor that will determine final crop size. Use of urea and DAP fertiliser will increase 10 percent and 4 percent respectively over the corresponding amounts used last year.
