Overall decrease in production but signs of winter crop recovery
Down 8% Cereal production
There is little change in total cereal area compared to 2020. Overall yield decreased by eight percent, resulting in an eight per cent decrease in total cereal production.
Wet conditions in 2019-20 led to decreases in the area used to grow winter planted crops and affected yields.
More favourable conditions for the 2020-21 sowing season and harvest have resulted in recovery of winter planting, reflected in an increased area and production for wheat and increased yield and production for winter barley.
Spring crops followed with decreases in area but also experienced yield decreases, resulting in decreased production.
There is a problem
