Grain production in the world, 1950-1995 and projection for 2050 Grain production in the world, 1950-1995 and projection for 2050
Shows the grain production in the world from 1950 to 1995 and predicts trendsuntil 2050. Inconsistency in production over the last several years has resulted in declining inventories as annual consumption has exceeded annual production. Current forecasts make 2003-04 the fifth consecutive year that annual world consumption of coarse grains will exceed production.
