Bulgaria’s Grain Exports Will Fall by 1.4%, UkrAgroConsult Says

Bulgaria’s grain exports will probably decline by 1.4 percent to 3.6 million metric tons in the marketing year starting July 1, according to agricultural researcher UkrAgroConsult.

The forecast compares with 3.65 million tons of exports expected in the current marketing year ending June 30, the Kiev- based researcher said in an e-mailed statement today.

The grain harvest will probably climb to 7.11 million tons this year from 6.99 million tons in 2011, with the wheat harvest increasing to 4.2 million tons from 4.15 million tons last year, UkrAgroConsult said.

Wheat exports in the marketing year from July 1 may drop to 1.9 million tons compared with a projected 2.1 million tons in the current year through June, according to the researcher.
