In their November 2019 Cereal Suppy and Demand Brief they list the production figures for the past three years, and estimates for this year. The footnote #1 explains "Production data refer to the calendar year of ...

Global supplies of major cereals have exceeded total consumption in recent years, leading to a significant build-up of inventories and much lower prices in international ...
