Harvesting work has begun with the harvest of autumn barley. According to the preliminary estimates the weather is expected to result in a lower-than-average yield, with about 7 million tonnes of summer-harvested arable crops being harvested from more than 1.6 million hectares, the Secretary of State of the Ministry of Agriculture said at a press conference in Budapest.

After the meeting of the Harvest Coordination Committee, Feldman Zsolt emphasized that this is a cautious estimate, a more accurate picture is expected in the more advanced state of the harvest.
Harvesting of winter barley is currently at 30 percent, in addition, harvesting of winter wheat has begun, and rapeseed will start this weekend. Yields could be 6 to 15 percent lower than the average of previous years, which means a significant loss, he said. (MTI)
