World Food Situation

Wheat production is low on a global scale due to droughts and flooding in major exporting countries like the United States, Canada, Ukraine, and Argentina. FAO reports that current global reserves are near the level they were in 2008. With food prices projected to increase, the ability to strengthen smallholder participation in value-added supply chains will be crucial to maintaining food security. Additionally, inefficient processes for drying, processing, and storing wheat cause postharvest losses, and stakeholders should look to close these gaps in order to not lose more of their harvest.
