The International Grains Council (IGC) is projecting the 2007-08 workd wheat crop at 624 million tonnes, up 3 million from last month's projection. The estimate is a 34 million tonnes or 5.8 percent above lasdt year. "Given continued good weather, significantly larger harvests are expected," said IGC. The agency sees the largest increases in Europe, the Commonwealth of Independent States, U.S., South America, India and Australia. However IGC points out that China's 2007-08 wheat plantings are down, which indicates a potential drop there of 4 million tonnes from 2006-07. IGC also warns while weather conditions have generally been favorable for wheat in the northern hemisphere, growth is more advanced than normal and could leave plants "vulnerable to damage from late frosts."
