The U.S. Grains Council has launched its 2012 online Annual Report, available now at www.usgcAnnualReport.org.
The online report includes success stories from the year, video highlights, photographs, and market profiles from more than 25 countries and regions. Market profile pages display supply/demand charts, market growth potential and other information viewers may find useful, including highlights from Council programs in each country.
“Since the Council was founded 52 years ago, we have focused continuously on building markets and expanding trade opportunities for U.S. farmers and agribusinesses,” said Don Fast, USGC chairman.“By promoting sound trade policies, building relationships between trading partners and being a reliable third-party resource, the Council and its members have enhanced food security and food choice for countless people around the world. This work is at the heart of our mission of Developing Markets, Enabling Trade and Improving Lives. The Council's global staff live and breathe it - and it makes us proud to witness their efforts.”
An exclusive feature of the online report provides access to downloadable spread sheets containing supply/demand data for more than 25 countries and regions that are provided on the individual market profile pages. 
A downloadable form of the printed publication is also available online.

The drought in Kansas, USA has deepened over the last week, threatening winter wheat production, Reuters reports. 
Kansas is generally the top US wheat-growing state, but the new crop planted in the autumn has been suffered from a lack of soil moisture.
