Hungary To Harvest 4.5 MMT Of Wheat

Hungary's new agriculture minister, Sandor Fazekas, says that the country should produce around 4.53 MMT of wheat this year, although the harvest this year is delayed by flooding. That's a modest increase on last season, where the government peg production at 4.4 MMT.

Flooding has caused a slight reduction in corn plantings this season to 1.127 million hectares, although it is too early to put an estimate on crop size, he added.
