Compared to the previous years, 10 percent less winter wheat can be produced in Tolna County this year, but winter barley has grown more than last year, the Tolna County Directorate of the National Chamber of Agriculture (NAK) told MTI.

According to the data of the chamber, 39 percent of the 46,795-hectare sown area of winter wheat was harvested with an average yield of 5.9 tons per hectare. This quantity is better than expected, but falls short of the average of more than six tonnes in previous years.

It is estimated that due to the lack of rainfall in spring, the quality of wheat is also lower than last year: 70 percent of fodder and 30 percent of mill-quality crops can be expected. (MTI)
