Bulgarian corn crop rises 6% on-year

 

 

This year, Bulgaria produced 2.05 million tonnes of corn from over 98% of the sown area, higher by 6% or 120,000 tonnes from last year mainly due to a larger region, the agriculture ministry said Monday (Nov 21).

 

Farmers in the Balkan country planted 376,000 hectares with corn last autumn, up from 314,000 ha in 2009, the ministry said.

 

Favourable weather boosted the EU's corn crop, with grain analysts expecting it to jump to 64.4-65 million tonnes from 55 million last year.
