Russian ministry reports on rate of grain planting up to 5 May
BBC, May 11, 2004
Russian farmers have planted spring grain crops on 9.372m hectares, 27.5 per cent of the targeted area, as of 5 May, the Agriculture Ministry said on Tuesday 11 May , citing preliminary estimates.

The planting is proceeding considerably faster than last year amid favourable weather conditions.

By the same date last year, crops had been planted on 6.162m hectares.
Grain crops are expected to be planted on 34m hectares, or 2m more than last year. The government is also targeting an increase in the areas set aside for corn and soybean in order to decrease Russia's dependence on imports of these crops.

Russia expects this year's grain harvest to total around 75m tonnes in bunker weight, which corresponds to around 69m tonnes in clean weight. Last year, Russia's grain output declined to 67.2m tonnes in clean weight, down from 86.6m in 2002.

Russia emerged as a big grain exporter in the 2002-03 marketing year (July-June), shipping abroad around 17m tonnes of grain. In July-January of 2003-04, exports amounted to around 6.5m tonnes, while the overall 2003-04 exports are expected to be over 7m tonnes.
