The summer harvest can begin with the harvest of winter barley in two weeks, if there is no significant cooling in the coming period, said the president of the field crop production and supply department of the National Chamber of Agriculture (NAK).

Petőházi Tamás explained that where there was rain in the days, it can help the grain saturation in the autumn cereals, except in the Kisalföld, where the weather used to be the most droughty. However, the fallen rain can no longer have a significant effect on the yield of rapeseed. The rains helped the development of the hoeing plants, but in the case of sunflowers, it made it more difficult to control pathogens and pests, he added. (MTI)
