Catching up with USDA FAS: Russia, South Africa, Chile and more

U.S. agricultural attaches and their in-country assistants produce the best English-language, Web-available reports on non-U.S. agriculture issues I have seen. Ag Canada has published some market intelligence on U.S. food trends,  but I have looked for reports from other government sources (readers: inform me if you have seen other source of ag info I may be missing)  and have never found the coverage provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Foreign Agricultural Service. 

Here are recent reports that may be of interest to readers:

Turkey Fresh Deciduous Annual From the report: MY 2011 is predicted to be a better year both in terms of production and exports as demand from new markets, such as Iraq and Iran, grows.

South Africa Fresh Deciduous Annual From the report: Post forecasts 2011/12 South African apple exports at 312,000 MT on increased available supplies. Post estimates 2010/11 South African apple exports increased nearly four percent to 309,000 MT based on industry reports. The EU, which is the world’s second largest apple importer, is SA’s traditional destination for apples with the UK being the biggest member-state market.
