GIEWS Update - Mongolia

12/09/2017

Due to a prolonged drought in Mongolia, the 2017 wheat output is estimated to drop by almost 50 percent from last year’s near-average output. Production of other food crops, such as potatoes, barley, oats and vegetables, also has been severely affected. Limited fodder availability and pasture access in drought-affected areas raises serious concerns for the livestock sector in the forthcoming winter months. Cereal import requirements in the 2017/18 marketing year forecast to rise sharply.
