Wheat Production in Argentina Continues to Decline

Due to widespread dry conditions, Argentina’s wheat production forecast for the 2023-24 marketing year has been revised lower in the most recent Global Agricultural Information Network report from the US Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS). The FAS dropped its projections for Argentine wheat output by 2 million tonnes from the previous forecast to 14.5 million tonnes.

Argentina, typically the largest wheat producer and exporter in South America, is in the midst of a three-year stretch of dry conditions.
