Hungarian Harvest Disappoints

Joachim from DLR in Germany tells me that the wheat harvest in Hungary is already 80% completed, with yields coming in between 3.0-4.5 MT/ha. Bushel weights are ranging only 65-72 kg/hl in the feed wheats, with some of the better quality milling wheats making up to 74 kg/hl.

The wet spring and early summer mean that mold and fusarium are a significant problem this year, with this grade of wheat being only suitable for the biogas plants, he adds.
