Great Britain has increased wheat production in 2022/23

The AHDB estimates that the British wheat production in 2022/23 is 15,66 million tons, which is 12% more than the harvest volume of the previous season. At the same time, experts note that the grain yield exceeds the average annual level.

Given the high domestic production and high global prices, experts predict that the country's wheat imports will fall to 2022 million tons in 23/1,23 (-769 thousand tons per year). At the same time, UK grain exports could more than double in a year - to 2,01 million tonnes.

Total wheat consumption in the UK is also expected to rise to 15,22 million tonnes in the current season, mainly due to strong demand from the Bioethanol sector and the increased use of wheat in animal feed (7,3 million tons).
