Wheat around the world ...
Argentina will grow more wheat, due to larger plantings, in 2010/11 while corn output drops slightly as yields return to normal, said the U.S. agricultural attache in Buenos Aires in a report released on Friday. The attache forecast a wheat crop of 12 million tonnes and exports of 7 million tonnes. Corn (maize) was pegged at 19.5 million tonnes and exports at 11 million tonnes. Attache reports are not official USDA data. USDA has not issued estimates of 2010/11 wheat and corn production. According to USDA, Argentina wheat production in 2009/10 was 9.6 million tonnes with exports at 4 million tonnes, while the corn crop was estimated at 21 million tonnes with exports at 12 million tonnes. The attache report said wheat plantings would expand by 5 percent, to 4 million hectares "as a result of the need to put more wheat land into the crop rotation. "While soybeans are generally more profitable, many producers are concerned about the long-term negative impact of not rotating soybeans with other crops. Some local plant pathologists report that more pests are attacking soybean crops as a consequence of mono-cropping," said the report. Corn plantings were expected to expand by 5 percent, resulting in a harvest area of 2.6 million hectares, although yields would decline from the "excellent" level of 2009/10. "As with wheat, producers are also looking to plant more corn in rotation with soybeans," said the report. "Sorghum and rice production in MY 2010/11 is forecast at 3.6 million MT and 930,000 MT (milled basis) respectively. The 2010/11 marketing year opens March 1 for corn and Dec 1 for wheat.

Algeria : Algeria plans for the first time to invite bids from foreign investors to lease farmland as part of efforts to ease its food imports bill, the head of a state agriculture body said on Thursday. Mohamed Cherif Ould Hocine, head of the National Chamber of Agriculture, told Reuters in an interview that details of the plan had not been finalised but said majority stake would not be available and bidders will need Algerian partners.
The farmland on offer would be for high yield crops including grains, he said.
Ould Hocine expected a repeat of last year's record cereal harvest of 6.12 million tonnes, saying that would significantly help reduce imports.
"Our country wants to rationally use its tools with the aim of increasing agricultural production. Algeria is open and it is a liberal country," he said.
Ould Hocine said it was up to the agricuture ministry to set a date for launching the tender for foreign investors and provide details on how to handle the process.
But he said :"Regarding the farms intended for foreign investment, assets will remain national ones because land is not for sale."
"We are going towards a partnership. Foreign investors will never have majority stake. They will certainly provide technology and capital to work in parnership on that land," he added.
In most years Algeria imports 5 million tonnes of cereals to fill shortfalls in domestic output.
But for the first time in 40 years Algeria last March announced it was planning to export barley.
