Morocco 2020/21 wheat imports seen at 6.2 million T -USDA attache

Sept 30 (Reuters) - Following are selected highlights from a report issued by a U.S. Department of Agriculture attache in Rabat:

"Morocco's wheat imports in MY2020/2021 are estimated at 6.2 million MT (metric tons), about 35% higher than imports in the MY2019/20. This significant increase was mostly due to the weak domestic production and the suspension of wheat import duties. France and Ukraine continue to control the largest share for the Moroccan common wheat market, while Canada dominates the durum wheat market. U.S. wheat remains priced out of the Moroccan market, even with the full removal of Moroccan duties."
