World wheat production revised up this month

The data series for wheat production in Nepal has been revised starti ng in 2007, and for 2012/13 output is projected 0.3 million tons higher at 1.7 million. Slight (less-than-0.1-million-ton) 2012/13 production changes are made for Russia and Peru based on official local reports.
Wheat production numbers are also slightly revised for Georgia (2010/11 and 2011/12 marketing years) and for Kyrgyzstan (years 2007/08 through 2009/10 marketing years), based on government statistical data.
