This report provides forecasts concerning the yields per hectare and total production of cereals and oilseed crops for the year 2013. The results are presented at national level.
Yield per hectare
The yields per hectare are estimated to increase for half of the cereal crops compared with 2012. One of the crops with the highest expected increase in yield compared with 2012 is Spring wheat (+10 %). The yields of all crops are expected to increase compared with the average yields per hectare for the last five years as well.
The yields per hectare for oilseed crops are estimated to mostly decrease compared with 2012. Only the yield of Winter turnip rape (+10 %) is expected to increase compared with the previous year. Compared with the average yield per hectare for the last five years, the yields of Spring rape and Winter rape are estimated to decrease.
The forecast shows that the total production of cereals is estimated to be 4.9 million tonnes in 2013, which is about 4 % less than 2012 and unchanged compared with the average for the years 2008-2012. The major reasons for the lower total production of cereals estimated for 2013 are reduced area cultivated with Winter wheat as well as a lower yield per hectare of Winter wheat.
This year’s harvest of oilseeds is estimated to be 0.31 million tonnes, which is about 2 % less than 2012. Compared with the average total production of oilseeds for the last five years, the estimation of the production in 2013 is about 11 % higher. The area cultivated with oilseeds 2013 increases by 14 % compared with the harvested area in 2012 and yield per hectare decreases for most oilseed crops compared with 2012.
