Russia’s Stavropol Region Grain Harvest Is 33% Smaller Than 2011

Russia’s southern Stavropol region, the country’s second-biggest grain grower, harvested 33 percent less grain than a year earlier, according to regional Agriculture Ministry data.

Stavropol’s farmers completed harvesting and got 4.2 million metric tons of grains, excluding corn, the ministry said, citing Nikolai Velikdan, deputy head of the regional government. Frosts in winter, drought in spring and summer and rains during harvesting cut the crop, the ministry said in a statement on its website yesterday.

Last year, Stavropol harvested 6.3 million tons of grains excluding corn, according to the ministry. Total grains output was 8.2 million tons, according to the state statistics data.

The average grain yield in the region was 2.22 tons per hectare (2.47 acres), down from 3.9 tons in 2011, according to Stavropol’s agriculture ministry data.

This year’s crop has better grain quality, Velikdan said. Milling grain quality accounts for 89 percent of the harvest this year, up from 82 percent a year ago, he said.

Wheat for September delivery dropped 1.6 percent to $8.6575 a bushel at 11:39 a.m. London time on the Chicago Board of Trade.
