Excerpt: Early prospects for 1999 point to some reduction in global cereal output. Based on the condition of crops already in the ground and planting intentions for those to be sown later this year, and assuming normal weather for the remainder of the 1999 cropping seasons, FAO?s first forecast puts world cereal output this year at 1 850 million tonnes (including rice in milled terms), about 1.5 percent below 1998 but still above the average of the last five years. If current forecasts materialize, cereal output would not be sufficient to meet expected consumption requirements in 1999/2000 and global cereal stocks accumulated in the last two seasons would have to be drawn down to below safe levels. However, it should be pointed out that, with many of the 1999 crops still to be sown, and others just in the early stages of development, these forecasts are very tentative, and will firm up only later in the year.
