EU lowers 2012-13 wheat production to 126.5 million



The common wheat production forecast for 2012-13 season in the 26-nation bloc has been cut by the European Commission's agriculture department on Tuesday (May 29) to 126.5 million tonnes, five million tonnes down on its previous forecast.


The forecast would represent a slight fall in EU wheat production in 2012-13 compared with the estimated 128.5 million tonnes harvested in 2011-12, Commission data showed.


The Commission's forecast for the 2012-13 corn harvest was little changed at 63.7 million tonnes.
