Statistics Canada reports sharp drops of stocks of total wheat to 10.1 Mt as of March 31

Statistics Canada reports sharp drops of stocks of total wheat to 10.1 Mt as of March 31 | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

Stocks of wheat, canola, barley, dry peas, oats and lentils were all down on March 31, 2022 compared with the same day a year earlier, a result largely attributable to lower opening supply. Conversely, stocks of corn for grain and soybeans rose. Lower total supplies for most crops were the result of lower production in 2021. This contributed to a decrease in exports for most crops, despite strong global demand. Both domestic and international grain markets continue to face uncertainty because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and international tensions. Wheat stocks lower on decreased production.

Stocks of total wheat fell 38.7% year over year to 10.1 million tonnes as of March 31. On-farm stocks decreased 52.8% to 6.0 million tonnes, while commercial stocks rose 9.2% to 4.1 million tonnes.

Stocks of wheat excluding durum were down 36.5% to 8.6 million tonnes, while durum wheat stocks fell 49.1% to 1.5 million tonnes.

Publication: Challenges for drought assessment in the Mediterranean region under future climate scenarios

Droughts can have strong environmental and socio-economic impacts in the Mediterranean region, in particular for countries relying on rain-fed agricultural production, but also in areas in which irrigation plays an important role and in which natural vegetation has been modified or is subject to water stress. The purpose of this review is to provide an assessment of the complexity of the drought phenomenon in the Mediterranean region and present various perspectives on drought in the present and under future climate change scenarios. The projections of various model experiments on future climate change scenarios strongly agree on an increased frequency and severity of droughts in the Mediterranean basin. Nevertheless, given the complexity of the phenomenon, with different types of droughts and complex interrelated impacts, significant future uncertainties remain. For example, uncertainties are stronger for hydrological droughts than meteorological ...

This is an excellent opportunity to analyse the deep routed impact of the Russia-Ukraine conflict on Black Sea grain and oilseeds exports in the MENA region. Leading industry executives will debate opportunities to diversify sources of supply while addressing its implications on freight and trade execution, as well as the initiatives undertaken by MENA governments to ensure a stable, traceable and secure domestic food market.

At a time of strong market volatility, the conference represents a platform to discuss risk management solutions, for the benefit of private and public importers alike.
