Italy wheat crop seen down after bad weather
ROME , Italy's durum wheat crop is estimated to drop nine percent in 2003 compared with last year due to the combined impact of a lower planted area and bad weather, farm research group ISMEA said on Monday.
Rome-based ISMEA said on its website at that it estimated the durum crop at 3.8 million tonnes, down from 4.18 million last year.
It said that part of the reason for the fall in production was a 4.8 percent drop in the sown area.
"Apart from that, the bad weather in the autumn and winter, with persistent rains and frequent hailstorms, often caused delays in sowings," ISMEA said.
"The spring, characterised by low temperatures and frosts, caused some damage to crops, which were further hit by the excessive heat in June," it added.
ISMEA estimated that Italy's 2003 soft wheat crop would fall six percent year-on-year to around three million tonnes from more than 3.2 million last year.
