FACTBOX-World grain output seen down in 2012-FAO

ROME, Nov 8 (Reuters) - World cereal production is expected
to fall 2.7 percent to 2.284 billion tonnes in 2012 from record
levels last year, after wheat and maize harvests were hit by dry
weather in much of Europe and central Asia and the worst U.S.
drought in decades, the United Nations Food and Agriculture
Organisation said on Thursday.
    Supplies of rice on the other hand remain ample, leading to
a build-up of inventories, the FAO said in its Food Outlook
report.
