Domestic consumption comes to around 2.5 mln-3 mln tonnes so there will also be plenty of wheat for exports, the state secretary added. 

This yearʼs cereal harvest is expected to reach 7.5 mln tonnes.

Farmers have also harvested 1.3 mln tonnes of barley and 781,000 tonnes of rapeseed. 

Hungaryʼs wheat harvest was about 5 mln tonnes in 2019.
