Wheat and barley imports to Algeria look set to remain at elevated levels in the 2024-25 marketing year with delayed sowing, below-average rainfall and poor soil-moisture conditions season to date expected to result in a crop similar to last year’s poor harvest.

Algeria was hit hard by drought throughout the 2022-23 growing season. The seedbed was dry when the crops were planted, and soil-moisture conditions remained well below average through to the cusp of harvest. Rain finally fell in late May and early June, leading to devastating localised flooding, some winter-crop losses, and extensive quality downgrades.

Algeria was quite an active importer of wheat in January, purchasing at least 350,000t durum wheat early in the month.
