Bulgaria is expecting a very good corn and sunflower
Bulgaria is expecting a very good corn and sunflower crop and extra high exports of all grains and oilseeds. Sunflower crop production is likely to reach 700,000 MT and corn production 1.4 MMT. Wheat exports for the first two months in MY04/05 were about 350,000 MT, and barley exports reached 190,000 MT. Bulgaria filled its EU exports quotas, 275,000 MT of wheat and 55,000 MT of barley in full amount and in time. Major export destinations were Spain, Italy and Greece.

Wheat: In Central and South Bulgaria, most farmers reported yields of 3.3 MT/HA to 3.5 MT/HA, with some exceptions of 4.0-4.5 MT/HA. However, in North Bulgaria or in the major grain production regions, majority of framers reported yields of 4.5 MT- 6.0 MT/HA. With the revised higher production estimate, the average yield in MY04/05 is currently estimated by Ag Sofia at 3.6 MT/HA. Wheat quality is reported to be good and suitable for exports. The best quality wheat is reportedly already exported, mainly to the EU countries within the export quota of 275,000 MT. The prevailing wheat, however, has lower gluten content this year due to humid weather.

Sunflower: Sunflower yields in South Bulgaria are estimated around 1.0 –1.5 MT/HA or above but are not exceptionally high. The pollination was very good, heads are full, and the seeds are of good quality. In North Bulgaria, sunflower yields are much higher, around 2.5 MT/HA. Weed infestation was observed mainly in North Bulgaria. With the revised production estimate, the average yield in MY04/05 is currently estimated by AgSofia at 1.4 MT/HA.
