Sweden's 2008 Wheat Quality Poor

The Swedish wheat harvest this year is the worst in terms of quality across Europe, industry sources say. Sweden will therefore be obliged to import record amounts of wheat in order to meet demand for basic products such as bread. Higher bread prices are to be expected as bad weather has taken its toll on wheat harvests. Almost all the harvest collected in central Sweden is of such poor quality that it can't be used for bread and is only sitable for animal feed.
