Grain Union: RussiaТs 2020 grain harvest may break record of 2017

MOSCOW, Apr 20 (PRIME) -- RussiaТs grain harvest may break a historic record of 135.539 million tonnes set in 2017 if the weather is good in 2020, Arkady Zlochevsky, president of the Russian Grain Union, said in a news conference on Monday.

УIf no significant and global weather risks emerge, we will get a harvest of around 130 million tonnes in these conditions judging by the sowing level, by the current grain yield, and by the technological resources invested in the sowing campaign. This is an average figure. If we are lucky with the weather, the harvest may even beat the historic record,Ф he said.

But if the weather is bad, the grain harvest may contract noticeably. УNevertheless, in any case and in any scenario, I think that we will not have a harvest below 115 million tonnes,Ф he said.

RussiaТs gross grain harvest stood at 121.2 million tonnes in 2019 including 74.453 million tonnes of wheat, according to the Federal State Statistics Service. Earlier in April, First Deputy Agriculture Minister Dzhambulat Khatuov said that the authority maintained its forecast for the grain harvest in 2020 at 125.3 million tonnes.
