Crop Acreage and Yield Estimate - Tunisia

Categories: Crop Monitoring

In Tunisia, wheat is one of the most important staple foods, occupying more than 50% of the area dedicated to rainfed cereals. With an average production covering about 70% of domestic demand, wheat production deficit hiners Tunisia’s trade balance as the shortfall has to be filled by annually importing variable quantities (up to 50% of the national demand) to bridge the gap between annual production and annual consumption.
