Starting with the May issue, the following changes will be made to the World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates Report (WASDE):
- Price range forecasts will be eliminated in favor of single price points for all crops and livestock.
- The international Supply and Use tables for Crops will include an aggregate value for “World less China,” representing the balance sheet values outside of China.
- The ordering of countries and lists of Major Importers/Exporters will be updated to eliminate outdated aggregations (such as “Former Soviet Union), and better reflect current trade patterns.
