How Big Is Germany's Wheat Crop?

The IGC recently said 26.4 MMT, a small increase on last season despite reduced plantings, with yields averaging around 8 MT/ha.

The agriculture ministry have just upped their estimate by 100,000 MT, but still only to just shy of 25.2 MMT (including a small amount of durum wheat).

That's a fairly substantial difference of opinion is it not? Not as substantial as getting confused over which adjacent countries belong to you granted, but significant nevertheless.

Barley output is held steady at 12.3 MMT (12.0 MMT in 2008), whilst rapeseed production is also increased by 100,000 MT to 6.3 MMT, 21% higher than in 2008.
