Czech wheat harvest will fall
PRAGUE , The Czech wheat harvest will fall by nearly one third this year because drought in the past weeks hurt winter-battered crops and cut grain yields, an official prediction showed on Monday.
The Czech Statistical Bureau (CSU) cut its wheat harvest prediction by five percent from June. It predicts Czech farmers would likely harvest 2.7 million tonnes of winter and spring wheat, down from 3.9 million in 2002.
Czech crops were damaged by a severe winter, which forced farmers to plough in thousands of hectares of winter grains in the spring.
A severe dry spell in Europe in the past weeks made a further dent in yields. The CSU said wheat crops would yield 4.12 tonne a hectare, down by nearly 10 percent from last year.
Wheat is the main market commodity in the Czech Republic, a largely industrialised country where less than 200,000 of 10.2 million people work in agriculture.
The poor harvest is expected to meet domestic consumption but leave no surplus for exports.-
