tonnes, according to the US Department of Agriculture attaché in
This is 300,000 tonnes higher than original forecast as the drought damage
was less worse than expected and a higher quality of seed was available.

Corn production for the country is also expected to be higher
this season and is set at 4.15m tonnes (from 4m tonnes at earlier predictions).
