USDA: India registra baja en la producción de trigo (texto en inglés)
Post estimates MY 2017/18 wheat production marginally lower at 96 MMT on lower than earlier reported official planting estimate of 30.7 million hectares in the third advance estimate. Due to the timely onset of the spring season and absence of late season rains (March/April), wheat was harvested at ideal times in most states starting late March in Madhya Pradesh/Rajasthan and was over in most states by early May. Unofficial field reports suggest that the yields in most of the growing states are higher than normal (five year average) but lower than the record yield in MY 2012/13 due to early temperature stress (November/December). Most industry sources estimate the crop harvest to be in the range between 92 to 96 MMT, compared with the government’s third advance estimate of 97.4 MMT on ‘over-optimistic’ yield expectation (3.17 MT/hectare). Post estimates MY 2016/17 wheat production at a record 96 MMT from a record 30.7 million hectares with an expected yield realization of 3.13 MT/hectare.
