The moat dynamic growth will be in of grabs, mduding wheat, for animal feed but for the most part of this grtmth is unlikeiy to offset the over-all marketing decKne for cereals, says the study prepared by the council's secretariat and pub- lished today. Certain specific types of wheat, such as Canadian hard varieties, may escape from the over-all decline.

This forecast fa based 'mainly on trends in the non-Communist worU. The council, which ad- ministers international grain agreements, says that Bttle is known about coniumption trends in these "centrai-pUnned countries "but any increase in their imports of grains is un- likely to outweigh the falling re- quirements of. the other eco- nomic groupings."
