El pronóstico es del International Grain Council, básicamente habrá una gran cosecha de maíz -una vez más- por el cultivo de EEUU. Los precios se estabilizan.
The world's 2009-10 grain output forecast has beenrevised up to 1.733 billion metric tons, but is still 57 million tons less thanthe record 2008-09 crop, the International Grains Council said Thursday. The 18-million ton rise from June's world grain production estimate is partlydue to larger than expected U.S. corn plantings, said the IGC. The larger plantings, combined with an improved outlook for production in theEuropean Union, China and Africa, pushed the IGC's 2009-10 world cornproduction estimates up to 781 million tons from the June estimate of 768million tons, said the report. However, even with the upward revision, 2009-10 world corn production is alsoexpected to fall short of the previous year by 6 million tons. The IGC slightly increased its world wheat output forecast to 654 milliontons, up 2 million tons on the previous forecast, but down 5% on the year. "Prospects (for wheat) have improved in Russia, the US, China and Morocco,but forecasts for the European Union, Canada and Argentina are lowered," saidthe report.
