Romania Historical low production
Temperatures reaching historical lows in the winter - spring of 2003, followed by an unprecedented shortage of rainfall and extreme heat in summer allover the southeast Balkan and Danube-basin region, which reduced Romania’s wheat and barley production to levels that make the country heavily dependent on imports for the rest of the current marketing year.

Strongly affected by these extreme weather conditions (which, moreover, favored intense pest attacks), local wheat hardly meets local milling standards. The official average yield estimate is 1.7 MT/HA on a total 1.4 million HA harvested, resulting in an output of 2.4 MMT. The highest yields and best quality were obtained in western Romania, with 2.5-3 MT/HA in Timis and Arad, while most counties in the Danube Plain and Moldova were devastated by drought. A similar pattern can be observed in winter barley, for which official production figures stand at 230,000 MT, derived from an average yield of 1.9 MT/HA on 117,000 HA cropped, with large disparities ranging from 2.4-3 MT/HA in west (Timis, Arad), to 0. 2-0.5 MT/HA in south and east (Baragan Plain and Moldova). To these, a modest production of about 240,000 MT of spring two-raw barley adds.

Data from industry and field observations, corroborated with satellite pictures, nonetheless indicate that production figures stand at even lower levels. FAS Bucharest further revises down production estimates for MY 2003/04 at only 2 MMT (as our average yield estimate is 1.4 MT/HA), of which about half is reportedly kept in reserve on-farm and unlikely to reach the market.
