Drought cuts into global wheat production

Drought in key wheat producing countries is having an impact on world supply.

We have talked a lot about how the western drought is impacting American farmers and ranchers, but we are now seeing its impact on global production.

A USDA economist explains the outlook for not only the U.S., but Canada and beyond.

According to Mark Jekanowski, “United States, especially, drought affects the spring wheat crop, but certainly for Canada, that’s partially all spring wheat and Kazakhstan as well, they’ve been suffering drought throughout the entire growing season.”

Forecast reductions in world wheat production include 2 million tons from Canada, half a million tons from Kazakhstan, and 1.4 tons from the United States.
