Latest News

In June 2020 UK brewers, maltsters and distillers used 116.9Kt of barley, according to AHDB’s latest statistics on cereals usage, 29% less than June 2019.

The latest EU Commission trade data shows the UK imported, 57.54kt of non-EU maize in July. There’s much more to come…

Rapeseed imports into the EU27 + UK are off to a slow start this season, in a year where the trading bloc faces another 6.0Mt import requirement. Difficult sowing conditions, coupled with extended periods of dryness, have hit production estimates for much of the continent.

Global wheat prices declined last week after Russian consultancy IKAR increased its forecast for the Russian crop from 76.5Mt to 78.0Mt last Monday (27 Jul).

AHDB’s first harvest progress report of 2020 points to yields of both GB winter oilseed rape and winter barley being sharply down on both last year and the five year average.

Domestic wheat prices will be more exposed to global fundamentals this season following the hefty decline to UK wheat production estimates. We are likely to sit closer to import parity levels.
