IGC cuts forecast for 2022/23 global corn crop
LONDON, Aug 18 (Reuters) - The International Grains Council (IGC) on Thursday cut its forecast for 2022/23 global corn output, largely driven by diminished prospects for crops in the European Union and the United States.
In its monthly update, the inter-governmental body downwardly revised its 2022/23 world corn (maize) crop outlook by 10 million tonnes to 1.179 billion tonnes.
The IGC also raised its forecast for wheat production in the 2022/23 season by 8 million tonnes to 778 million tonnes. (Reporting by Nigel Hunt; Editing by Jan Harvey)
