Previously published copies of the stocks of cereals held on farm in England and Wales and by ports, co-operatives and merchants in the UK. Published twice a year.
This section holds previously published copies of the biannual National Statistics publication, showing 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 is updated twice a year to give stocks at the end of February and June. 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.
Each publication gives the figures available at that time. The figures are subject to revision each month as new information becomes available.
