Tridge summary

The FAO's revised forecast for the 2023-2024 global cereal production anticipates a 1.1 percent increase from the previous year, reaching 2,841 million tons, thanks to higher corn production in the EU and increased wheat harvests in Argentina and Australia, alongside a record rice production in Asia. Global cereal consumption is also expected to rise by 1.3 percent, with wheat and coarse grain consumption seeing notable increases. Despite a slight decrease in global wheat stocks and a reduction in coarse grain stocks, overall cereal stocks are projected to end 2024 at 894 million tons, 2.3 percent higher than at the start of the season. The global grain trade volume is forecasted to increase by 1.7 percent, reaching 485 million tons, although wheat trade volumes are expected to slightly decrease by 0.7 percent to 199 million tonnes, influenced by increased exports from Russia and higher import demands from the EU, Thailand, and the UK.
