Grain harvest falls on bad weather
Grain harvest in Hungary saw a decrease to approximately 13.5 million tonnes this year, down from last year’s 16.3 million, due to unfavorable weather which affected the corn harvest, György Czerván, state secretary of Hungary’s Ministry of Agriculture, told the press today, according to Hungarian news agency MTI.
Corn harvest has come to 6.4 tons at 99% completion of the harvest, down from last yearʼs 9 million, the state secretary said, according to MTI.
The Central Statistical Office (KSH) earlier reported that this yearʼs cereal crop, which excludes corn, rose to 7.5 million tons from 7.2 million tons in 2014, MTI added.
