Raw material markets in the Maghreb countries

Belhadj T.

Livestock farming in the Magreb countries is heavily dependent on feeds and on their imports, mainly maize, barley and soya cake. The amount of imports depends heavily on the climatic conditions. Maize imports for Magreb varied between 1.5 and 2.5 million tons in the period 1990-1999. Barley has a considerable production in these countries (between 2 and 4 million tons); nevertheless this production is not enough for the needs and imports (from 200,000 tons in 1996 to 2 millions tons in 1993). Soya cake imports are also considerable (up to 600,000 tons in 1996).
