Romania wheat crop seen falling
BUCHAREST ,Romania's prolonged drought could reduce the 2003 wheat crop to around 2.5 million tonnes, down from the previous forecast of 3.5 million tonnes, the Agriculture Ministry said on Tuesday.
Romania harvested a meagre 4.38 million tonnes of wheat in 2002 - one of its lowest crops in 13 post-communist years and sharply down from some seven million tonnes in 2001 - because of drought which also affected grain quality.
"The ministry sees this year's wheat crop ranging from 2.5 to 2.6 million tonnes," ministry spokeswoman Gratiela Gheorghe told Reuters by telephone.
The ministry said previously that lack of rain and sunn pest insect attacks had damaged about 250,000 hectares, or 11.4 percent of the total area sown under wheat.
Traders and analysts said Romania would have to import 1.5 million tonnes of high quality milling wheat in 2003/04 to cover domestic demand. Russia and Hungary could be among the sources.
In 2002/03 the country exported around 800,000 tonnes of wheat to Egypt, Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
