July 23 (Bloomberg) -- Russian farmers harvested 17 million metric tons of grain so far this year, according to Agriculture Minister Yelena Skrynnik.

“I think we will meet the existing forecast of grain harvest of between 85 million and 90 million tons,” Skrynnik said at a meeting with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, according to an e-mailed government statement today.

The minister didn’t provide a year-earlier comparison for the crop. The yield was 3.6 tons a hectare, up from 3.1 tons in 2009, according to the statement.

As of July 20 last year, 21 million tons of grain had been harvested. The yield averaged 2.81 tons a hectare last year, according to the ministry.
