Bulgaria Grain and Feed Market Update

Wheat harvest started around June 23 and is progressing well due to favorable weather. Harvested area as of July 3 was 12% (119,000 HA), average yield 4.3 MT/HA (510,000 MT) which leads to total production of 4.3 MMT. According to farmers, as of July 20, wheat harvest progress varied from 35% to 99% in various regions or an estimated average of 60%. (Note: No official crop figures are released yet). See average reported yields by regions in Table#1.

About 40%-50% of wheat meets feed quality standards with reported bug damages (low W). The other half of the crop, however, much more than the usual 30%, is good milling wheat. According to the Association of grain producers, there is an increasing number of buyers (flour mills and traders) who try to manipulate lab test to show lower quality in order to push prices down.

Wheat production (industry estimates):

- planted area 1.0 million HA -1.11 million HA; - production: 3.76 MMT- 4.3 MMT (there are also some very optimistic estimates for 4.5 and 5.0 MMT).


Barley harvest started around June 16 and as of July 3 was 81% completed (166,000 HA) with average yield of 4.1 MT/HA (686,000 MT) which leads to total production of 700,000 MT. As of July 20, farmers reported 99% harvested areas. See average reported yields by regions in Table#1. Quality is very good, 64-65 kg/hl specific weight. Reportedly, about 25% of the crop is malting quality barley. Local needs of brewing industry are for 120,000-150,000 MT which will leave some malting barley export surplus. Barley production (industry estimates): – planted area: 206,000 HA -250,000 HA ; - production: 692,000 MT – 930,000 MT


Hot and dry weather in the first 3 weeks of July (pollination and flowering period) was critical for corn development and slightly reduced the crop potential. However, temperatures were not record high and there were scattered showers which helped to soften the negative effect. According to a recent MinAg survey, 65% of corn area was fertilized and 80% was treated with herbicides. Most industry estimates are for 324,000 HA-350,000 HA planted area, and production of 1.25-1.42 MMT.
