The World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) is prepared and released by the World Agricultural Outlook Board (WAOB). The report is released monthly, and provides annual forecasts for supply and use of U.S. and world wheat, rice, coarse grains, oilseeds, and cotton. The report also covers U.S. supply and use of sugar, meat, poultry eggs and milk, as well as Mexico’s supply and use of sugar. The WAOB chairs the Interagency Commodity Estimates Committees (ICECs), which include analysts from key USDA agencies who compile and interpret information from USDA and other domestic and foreign sources to produce the report. For more information about the WASDE process and data, visit the WASDE FAQs page.
NOTES TO USERS:
Changes to WASDE starting in May: Starting with the May 12, 2022 release (issue No. 624), the following changes will be made to the World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report:
- The sugar WASDE table (page 16) will have a separate line listing under “Imports” for High-tier tariff imports. The new line will appear directly below the line for imports from Mexico. Footnote 5 which once referenced imports from Mexico; and high-tier tariff sugar and syrups not otherwise specified will be eliminated.
- The U.S. Dairy Supply and Use table (page 33): The table will remove CCC Donations as a separate category and include all donations as part of domestic use. As such, stocks, imports, exports, and use will reflect total rather than commercial use and the headings will be adjusted accordingly.
Errata: On May 12, 2022, the May World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report (issue #624) was reposted to correct an error in the Livestock, Poultry and Dairy section of the discussion text. On page 5, the text referring to the 2022 dairy forecasts was corrected to read, “The Class III price is unchanged and Class IV is lowered.” Neither the U.S. Milk Supply and Use table nor the U.S. Dairy Prices table were affected. The PDF file was corrected and posted at 2:25 pm on May 12.
NEW! On April 8, the Secretary of Agriculture briefings on World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report and the Crop Production report will be livestreamed for the first time at 12:05 pm EDT on USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) https://www.youtube.com/usdanassfor.
