Iraq 2012 Wheat Crop 10-15% Below 2011

Iraq’s wheat crop is expected to decline further if rains do not arrive soon, according to a report from BlackSeaGrain.

Although some small showers have helped the crop, wheat yields are already down by 11 per cent on the last seasons crop.

If the rains do not arrive Iraq will most likely need to increase it’s imports of wheat for milling purposes, by the amount of the shortfall, at this time estimated to be around 250 TMT.
