Long-term, 10-year international projections provided in these tables (Excel Excel icon (16x16) format) indicate supply, demand, and trade for major agricultural crops and meats for selected countries and global totals. The projections provide foreign-country detail supporting USDA’s long-term projections released in February each year.
USDA’s long-term projections are a conditional scenario that assumes current U.S. farm legislation will remain in effect through the projections period, there are no shocks to the U.S. or global economies or agricultural sectors, and weather is normal. Specific assumptions also are made for the macroeconomy and other countries’ policies. The projections are prepared in October through December each year, reflecting a composite of model results and judgment-based analysis.
