Association head expects heat wave to hurt corn harvest
The recent days’ heat wave could negatively affect Hungary’s corn harvest this year, reducing it by about 1 million tons, Tamás Petőházi, the deputy head of the grain growers association GOSZ said in yesterday’s issue of Hungarian economy daily Világgazdaság.
According to the expert, each day of the five-day-long heat wave could have reduced harvest by an estimated 200,000 tons, which he supposes to be worth of HUF 35-40 bln. Earlier, Hungaryʼs corn harvest was expected to reach 9 million tons this year, the paper said.
