Uzbekistan sees bumper grain crop
TASHKENT , Uzbekistan, hit by bad weather this year, is 25 days behind its usual grain harvest schedule but is still targeting a bumper crop of 5.42 million tonnes, a government official told Reuters on Thursday.
The arid Central Asian State of 25 million people achieved its long-planned self-sufficiency in grain last year, gathering a record harvest of 5.40 million tonnes of grain.
"A cold winter and frequent showers delayed ripening by an average of 20-25 days this year, but we believe that eventually the harvest will be bigger than last year's," the official from the agriculture and water resources ministry told Reuters.
He said that to date farmers had gathered slightly more than 1.0 million tonnes of grain from a total of 17 percent of the sown area.
By the same time last year, farmers had harvested some 2.5 million tonnes from around half of the total acreage. Wheat is set to account for around 90 percent of the total grain harvest. Barley makes up the remainder.
Uzbekistan's annual domestic consumption is estimated at 4.5 million tonnes of bread-making wheat.
Officials expect large collective farms to produce a total of 4.77 million tonnes of grain this year from 1.386 million hectares. Private households will contribute a further 650,000 tonnes from some 150,000 hectares.
