Cereal demand and production is going to be tight in 2007

Production of cereals and demand for them is going to be tight in 2007, according to a report from the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization, in a statement released yesterday.

The FAO Says

World cereal production in 2007 is on track to reach a record level of 2 095 million tonnes, a rise of 4.8 percent over 2006 levels, FAO said in a tentative forecast issued today. But with stocks at their lowest level in over two decades, total supplies would still be barely adequate to meet increased demand, boosted by the fast-growing biofuels industry.

You can read all the numbers in the organisation’s Crop Forecast and Food Situation report.

Hattip to GreenVeg which says soon we may have a choice, eat food or drive.
