USDA updates farmer-reported U.S crop planting totals for October – RTRS

 

14-Oct-2015 05:18:48 AM

 

    WASHINGTON, Oct 14 (Reuters) – Farmers who participated in U.S. crop subsidy programs reported “prevented plantings”

for Oct. 1, 2015 of 2.362 million acres of corn, up from 2.352 million acres reported a month ago, 2.227 million acres of soybeans

versus 2.219 million acres last month, 0.697 million acres of wheat versus 0.696 million acres last month, the Department

of Agriculture said on Wednesday.

 

Producers enrolled in subsidy programs for Oct. 1, 2015 reported planted acreage, including failed acres, at 84.811 million of corn,

81.079 million of soybeans and 52.507 million of wheat.

 

Producers who enroll in several Farm Services Agency programs must submit to USDA an annual report regarding all cropland

use on their farms.

 

USDA uses the information as an element in its crop estimates, which cover all farms, not just those who participate in

the farm program.

 

Following are comparisons of farmer-reported plantings in Oct 2015 and Sept 2015 and Oct 2014, based on a survey of farms:

(Adds details)

    By Reem Shamseddine

    RIYADH, Oct 14 (Reuters) – ISaudi Arabia’s main

wheat-buying agency, the General Silos and Flour Mills

Organisation (GSFMO), said it expects to import 3.5 million

tonnes of the grain in 2016, when it will halt purchases of

locally grown wheat.

    For 2015, the agency is on track to import 3.4 million

tonnes of wheat, its Director General Ahmed al-Fares said in a

presentation given at the Saudi-French business Forum in Riyadh

on Tuesday and emailed to Reuters on Wednesday.

    Saudi Arabia has become a major importer of hard and soft

wheat since abandoning plans for self-sufficiency in wheat in

2008 as farming in the desert drained precious water supplies.

    The country has been steadily reducing wheat cultivation and

aims to be completely reliant on imports by 2016 to save water.

    Total purchases of locally produced wheat in 2015, the final

year of local procurement, are expected to reach 420,000 tonnes,

compared to purchases of 1.72 million tonnes in 2008 before the

reduction plan began.

    The country’s demand for wheat is expected to grow at an

annual rate of 3.2 percent to reach 4.5 million tonnes a year by

2025, the GSFMO said, largely due to population growth.

    Storage capacity currently stands at 3.1 million tonnes,

enough to last Saudi Arabia for more than 10 months.

    GSFMO has said it would raise its wheat storage capacity to

4 million tonnes by 2020, about a year’s worth of consumption.
