UK cereals supply and demand estimates

Updated 27 February 2020
The balance between supply and demand sets the overall tone of the domestic market. AHDB publishes forecasts of cereal supply and demand for the UK split into the areas of availability, consumption, exports and stocks.

Latest UK cereal supply and demand: February 2020

Key points
  • Higher supplies and relatively stable domestic consumption maintains a heavy wheat balance.
  • Barley surplus remains the highest in four years, despite a fall in supply.
  • Imports of maize to remain higher than the previous five year average, despite declining on the year.
  • With relatively stable demand, but substantially higher supplies the oat balance is the highest on records.

Get involved

As part of our work on UK cereals supply and demand we run two groups to enhance our offering to the industry – the AHDB Cross Sector Working Group and the AHDB Audit Function Group.

The aim of the two groups is to gain more industry input into the balance sheet forecasts before they are finalised, as well as ensuring all data is up-to-date and accurate.

To find out more or if you are interested in joining either group, please do get in contact with the AHDB Balance Sheet Team at balance.sheet.team@ahdb.org.uk
