NORTH AMERICA: Winter wheat planting is virtually complete in the United States, but crop conditions are reported to be poor reflecting exceptionally dry conditions in many parts. In the United States, 2001 wheat production fell further by 12 percent below 2000 and coarse grains output was also down by about 4 percent. In Canada, rain and cool weather delayed the 2000 harvest and wheat and coarse grains output is estimated to be below average and down somewhat from last year.
