All indications point to more wheat being planted around the world for harvesting next year, says United Nation’s Food and Agricultural Organization in its Food Outlook.

A strong expansion in wheat production, assuming normal growth in consumption, is bound to bring down wheat prices, said the globally noted report released in Londoan.

But the report is not optimistic about other food grains.For example, it says maize prices will remain high. Maize hit a 10-year high in February 2007 but have fallen considerably since.


Supply constraints in the face of brisk demand for biofuels triggered the initial price hike in maize prices. However, reacting to a massive expansion in plantings and expectations of a record crop this year, prices have started to come down, although by September they had still remained 30 percent above last year.

Prices of barley, another important cereal, also soared lately. Supply problems in Australia and Ukraine, tighter availability of maize and other feed grains compounded with strong import demand have contributed to the doubling of prices of both feed and malting barley in recent weeks.

Among all agricultural commodities, dairy products have witnessed the largest gains compared with last year, ranging from 80 percent to more than 200 percent.

High feed prices have also increased the cost of animal production and resulted in an increase in livestock prices.

Poultry is up most, by at least 10 percent. Growth in consumption and gradual reductions in trade restrictions are contributing to the increase in meat and poultry prices this season, says Food Outlook.
