more than compensate for falling sales by Brazil and the Russian Federation, on the demand side the EU is expected to remain the largest destination for maize in 2018/19.

Markets at a glance 5 FOOD OUTLOOK NOVEMBER 2018 World rice production is forecast to expand by 1.3 percent in 2018 to reach a new record high. India is predicted to spearhead this growth, due to generally adequate monsoon rains and higher minimum support prices. Sizeable expansions are also expected in Bangladesh, Madagascar, Sri Lanka, the United States, Tanzania and Viet Nam. By contrast, policy-driven output contractions are anticipated in China and Egypt, while falling returns are expected to depress production across much of Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Oceania. World rice utilization is forecast to increase by 1.1 percent in 2018/19, sustained by an expected rise in rice use for food consumption, while feed and industrial uses could decline. Global stocks are forecast to grow by 2.6 percent by the close of 2018/19 marketing seasons, more than was previously anticipated. Among the major exporters, principally India and the US are likely to end their seasons with larger inventories. Among importers, carryovers could rise mostly in China and to a lesser extent in Indonesia and the Philippines. These tendencies would lift the global stock-to-use ratio to 34.2 percent, its highest level

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
