Prospects for 2003 cereal production are mixed. Early indications for the 2003 wheat crops...

Europe, and in particular the European Union (EU) is a key market for date exporters. Although the EU imports of dates represent only 10 percent of world imports in volume, they account for some 30 percent in value.
