June 2022 market report

The 2022 global crop is forecast to be up 6.4% on the 2021 season, despite challenging weather conditions in the two largest producing origins. The initial crop forecast published for the Australian 2022 season predicted a crop of 54,930 tonnes in-shell @ 3.5% moisture (58,900 tonnes in-shell @ 10% moisture).

In contrast and despite flooding in some regions, South Africa has recently increased their forecast from 57,723 tonnes to 61,288 tonnes in-shell @ 3.5% moisture. Read More >>
