Details

This publication gives tonnages of wheat, barley and oats stocks held on farms in England and Wales and of wheat, barley, oats and maize stocks held by UK ports, co-operatives and merchants. The information for farm stocks is updated twice a year; in February (datasets only), and in June together with annual UK ports cooperatives and merchants data (Statistical Notice and datasets). Grain is a globally traded commodity and supply and demand is influenced by international markets. Stocks are an important measure of grain availability and a key component of UK cereals supply and demand balance sheets. The stocks at the end of June in any particular year form the opening stocks for the following season.

Next update: The Statistical Notice published 31 August 2017 is the final publication of this series by Defra. Further publications and datasets will be published by the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) AHDB cereal usage data.
