Latest News

Yesterday saw the release of the latest AHDB planting and variety survey, detailing regional planting figures across the different crops. One of the key highlights of the survey is the 25% reduction year-on-year in the area planted to wheat.

Today marks the latest release of the AHDB Planting and Variety survey results, providing a planted area estimates for the 2020/21 season. This season has cast many challenges to UK growers.

The current view of the global wheat market is that it’s looking well supplied in 2020/21 but there’s still potential for greater pressure or more support if crops come in larger or smaller.

Global grain prices received a sharp boost last week, particularly maize. Prices moved higher following the release of the USDA acreage report last Tuesday; maize plantings are estimated at 37.2Mha, down 2.0Mha from March’s intentions survey. If we see trend yields and abandonment, the US could still be set for a record crop. With a reduced crop area, weather again becomes an important swing factor for maize markets, particularly with the crop now silking.

Earlier this week, the USDA reported that US farmers had planted 2Mha less than they intended to plant back in March so we look at what this means for maize and wheat markets.

The release of the latest AHDB usage data has shown animal feed production down across all sectors in May.
