Newsroom 05/06/2014 | 08:51

Romanian farmers will harvest 8.3 million tonnes of wheat in less than one month, which is the highest production in the last 27 years, according to the available data, and also 12 percent higher than in 2013/2014 season, writes zf.ro.

Romania will consolidate its position as the 5th biggest wheat producers in the European Union, according to a report published by Toepfer, local leader of grain commerce.

The optimistic prognosis comes as a result of favorable weather conditions for the last six months. The only meteorological factors that can still damage productivity are heavy rains or a heat wave in the very near future.

Nearly half of the harves, 4 million tonnes, will be traded internationally, Romania becoming the third biggest wheat exporter in European Union and 11th worldwide.
