Japan will have adequate supplies of wheat despite public concern about poor harvests because the United States will continue to be a reliable supplier, U.S. officials said Tuesday.

“Traditional exporters, particularly the United States, maintain wheat stocks that are more than sufficient to compensate for any global wheat shortfall this year,” said a statement issued by the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo.

Pointing out that Japan is the largest buyer of U.S. wheat, the embassy stressed the importance of the two countries’ relations in the field of agriculture for the overall bilateral partnership.
