With 94% of the wheat harvest completed, the average yield stands at 5.6 tonnes/hectare, Feldman said.
He noted that last year's harvest had reached 4.2 million tonnes, as yields averaged 4.4 tonnes/hectare.
This year's crops of triticale, rye and oats will also be bigger than last year's, with harvests nearing completion, he said.
