The latest USDA report estimates Bangladesh corn production to increase by 0.5 mt to 4 mt in 2019/2020. This is as a result of new hybrid seed varieties expected to boost harvests. Losses however have been marked in rice and wheat production which were impacted by the recent floods in July. Rice production has been forecast at 35.2 mt whilst wheat stands at 1.148 mt for 2019/2020.
