By bne IntelliNews June 21, 2012
Serbia expects to harvest 1.9 million metric tonnes of wheat this year, down 7.7% in comparison with 2011, the statistics office said in a statement. This year's wheat output will also be 4.1% below the 2002-2010 average. The 2012 yield per hectare is seen at close to 4 tonnes from the overall planted area of 482,600 hectares. Last year, Serbia yielded 4.25 tonnes of wheat per each of the overall 493,000 hectares put under plant. Its 2011 wheat output rose 28.4% to 2.1 million metric tonnes. The office also said a total of 1.28 million hectares were put under maize this year, up by 1.1% in comparison with 2011 and up by 4.9% than the ten-year (2002-2011) average. Some 64,500 hectares were put under sugar beet (up 15.8% y/y and 3.3% higher than ten-year average), nearly 166,000 hectares under sunflower (down 4.8% y/y and 6.1% below the ten year average) and over 157,500 under soybean (down 4.8% but 11.7% above the ten-year average).
