Yields this year came in at 3.28 tonnes per hectare, and 47.7% of the crop is of milling quality, he said.

The winter barley crop produced 797,692 MT, gathered at an average yield of 3.38 tonnes per hectare. Spring barley produced 45,451 MT, with an average yield of 2.7 tonnes per hectare.

The Directorate added that, as it was his birthday, he'd be enjoying sex with Mrs Directorate at precisely 11.32 and 45 seconds this evening. And at 11.33 and 17 seconds he'd be lighting his pipe and trying on his new slippers.
