I wanted to know if you have reports on wheat and wheat flour production and new trends in Africa?

Good day,

Thank you for your question.  Our database has many reports on wheat flour production in Africa.

Please note that the reports below also include information of Sorghum and Millet.

This report has charts and graphs showing the major wheat producing countries in Africa that produce greater than 500,000 tonnes. It also shows charts depicting the widening gap in wheat production versus wheat consumption for all of Africa versus Sub-Saharan Africa.  There are images that demonstrate a basis for the widening gap related to changing weather conditions. There is also a chart that shows the percent change in wheat yield at low latitude versus mid-to-high latitude climates. Finally, this report describes concerns of the wheat farmers about factors that influence yield such as irrigation, monoculture, conservation among others.
