An estimated 29 billion bushels of wheat in the Northern Hemisphere are slated to be produced during the 2021-2022 crop season, but will the 2% year-over-year increase meet global market demands? Experts say it’s looking positive especially in the wake of rising corn prices which have made wheat a much more affordable feed alternative for livestock. Provided diplomatic relations remain friendly, a lot of the demand will continue to come from China to satisfy livestock, poultry and human consumption needs. While China is projecting their wheat harvest to come in at 6 billion bushels, they’re also estimating a need for an additional 367 million bushels in imports. Combine that with a pandemic and post-pandemic baking and pasta boom and the outlook is trending positively. See more 2021-2022 global wheat trends.
