Russia Harvests 30 Million Tons of Grain So Far, SovEcon Says

Aug. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Russia’s grain harvest is 30 million metric tons since July 1 with yields dropping across the country except for the Central federal district, down from 31.4 million tons this time last year, SovEcon said.

Russia’s total yield is 2.25 tons a hectare (2.47 acres) compared with 3.19 tons a hectare last year, Moscow-based SovEcon said on its website today. The central area yield is 2.81 tons a hectare, up from 2.65 tons a year earlier, it said.

The Agriculture Ministry is considering lowering its grain forecast for the whole year to 70 million tons because of drought since May, Interfax reported today.
