 Mexico: Grain and Feed Annual Report

 Highlights

The marketing year (MY) 2015/16 corn production is forecast at 23.4 million metric tons (MMT).

Similar to last year, Mexican corn production should remain relatively constant, despite lower prices, due to the lack of attractive prices from alternative crops.

MY 2015/16 corn imports are forecast slightly higher at 10.3 MMT due to increased feed demand from Mexico’s livestock sector.

Post/New MY 2015/16 production forecasts are up for wheat and sorghum at 3.7 MMT and 7.7 MMT respectively, while rice production is forecasted at 240,000 MT (rough production).

Responding to demands from various grower organizations about low commodity prices and the need for more assistance at the farm level, the Government of Mexico (GOM) announced new or updated support programs.

Our Programs and Services

Trade Policy

FAS expands and maintains access to foreign markets for U.S. agricultural products by removing trade barriers and enforcing U.S. rights under existing trade agreements. FAS works with foreign governments, international organizations, and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative to establish international standards and rules to improve accountability and predictability for agricultural trade.

Market Development and Export Assistance

FAS partners with 75 cooperator groups representing a cross-section of the U.S. food and agricultural industry and manages a toolkit of market development programs to help U.S. exporters develop and maintain markets for hundreds of products. FAS also supports U.S. agricultural exporters through export credit guarantee programs and other types of assistance.

Data and Analysis

FAS’s network of global contacts and long-standing relationships with international groups contribute to the agency’s unique market intelligence capacity. FAS analysts provide objective intelligence on foreign market opportunities, prepare production forecasts, assess export marketing opportunities, and track changes in policies affecting U.S. agricul­tural exports and imports.

Food Security

FAS leads USDA’s efforts to help developing countries improve their agricultural systems and build their trade capacity.
