World coarse grain production is projected to reach 1,135.8 million tons in 2011/12, down slightly this month as the U.S. reduction mostly offsets an increase in foreign countries, the latest Feed Oulook report released by the USDA reports.
Non-US corn production is up 2.0 million tons to 546.3 million as large increases for China, the EU, and Argentina are partly offset by a sharp reduction in prospects for Mexico with numerous other changes, especially for countries in Africa. Foreign barley production is up 0.6 million tons to 129.8 million with increased production for the EU and Kazakhstan. However, EU changes are reducing foreign rye production 0.6 million tons to 12.6 million, but boosting foreign oats and mixed grain production by 0.2 million and 0.1 million tons, respectively, to 21.9 million and 15.2 million tons. Changes to forecast 2011/12 millet production are mostly small and offsetting, but numerous sorghum changes boost non-US production 0.3 million tons to 54.7 million.
