The weather conditions prevailing at the end of April and in the first half of May were generally favorable for spring fieldwork in Hungary, Minister of Agriculture István Nagy said in a video posted on his Facebook page.
Nagy said that sowing and tillage had accelerated significantly, thus catching up with the lag due to the former cool and dry weather. He highlighted that, according to a report by the National Chamber of Agriculture on May 12, the sowing of spring cereals, peas and sugar beets had been practically completed.
The amount of sunflower and potatoes currently sown stands at 97% and maize at 94%, while soybean sowing rose to 84%.
