It was reported on July 22 that the USDA raised its estimate of Romania’s wheat production by 300,000 tons to 9.5 million tons, which is 58% higher than in 2020, but will still exceed 1,000 in 2017, 2018 and 2019. The threshold of 10,000 tons is about 500,000 tons lower.
USDA said, “Most areas of Romania continue to receive good rainfall, so the harvest forecast is raised. Similarly, Bulgaria also benefited from above-average rainfall, with its estimated production increased by 200,000 tons to 6.1 million tons." According to the latest report released by the European Commission on June 26, Romania will harvest 9.7 million tons of wheat in 2,100 hectares of arable land. In the ranking of the EU's largest wheat producing countries, Romania will surpass Poland to rank third, behind France and Germany.
