Hungary has harvested 8.06 million tonnes of corn in 2011, according to the Agriculture Ministry.

 

It said the final corn crop yield was 6.63 t/ha. It is 2% higher year on year.

 

The ministry said autumn wheat was planted to 1.1 million ha and autumn barley to 177,000 ha. Both were higher than in the previous season. But, the lack of rainfall hindered the development of the crops.
