WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA — Ag Growth International (AGI) announced in April it is now offering the new AGI Catalog app for iPad, iPhone and Android devices.
In the fall of 2013, the AGI website was streamlined and given a fresh look, while introducing the addition of the entire collection of AGI brand products. Later in 2014, AGI announced a rebranding initiative which ensures that all divisions and brands are linked to the parent umbrella of AGI with a consistent and familiar aesthetic while maintaining the historical value that the individual brands were built upon.
The AGI Catalog app is another tool for AGI customers and stakeholders to conveniently reference in today’s increasingly mobile climate, AGI said. AGI’s brands include: Batco, Wheatheart, Westfield, Grain Guard, Hi Roller, Twister, Union Iron, HSI, Applegate, Mepu, Tramco, Airlanco and Rem. The app mirrors the AGI website, offering complete product lines in one centralized place where users can search any product information, photos, specs or manuals.
The user friendly interface and sleek design makes it easy to use and accessible on-the-go, AGI said. Visit the links below to download the AGI Catalog today.
Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February, the world’s wheat supply has been thrown into question, with poorer nations facing scarcity and a potential food crisis, according to the United Nations.
Following are countries among the world’s least developed that are the most dependent on Russia and Ukraine for their annual wheat supply (2020), according to the UN Conference on Trade and Development. Nations in Africa import 44% of their wheat from Russia and Ukraine, according to the UN.
In marketing year 2022-23, the world is projected by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) to produce 779.03 million tonnes of wheat and provide 204.89 million tonnes for export.
These are the eight major wheat importing nations/regions as listed in the monthly USDA World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report and their annual tonnes with production.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February and the persistent La Niña climate phenomenon have combined to create some of the most volatile market conditions in recent memory, sending prices skyrocketing as nations that depend on wheat to feed their populations scramble to secure supplies.
Each month, the WASDE releases new projections to reflect the most recent global market and production conditions, and this slideshow will be updated with those changes.
