SovEcon Increases Russian Crop Estimates

This season's Russian grain crop will now total 96-97.5 MMT in clean weight, say SovEcon, significantly higher than the official Russian Ag Ministry of Lies forecast of 90 MMT. That's around 10-11% down on last season's 108.1 MMT.

The wheat crop will now amount to 60-61 MMT, they say, a reduction of around 5% on 2008's 63.8 MMT.
