Aug. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Russia’s grain yields are 28 percent smaller than a year earlier after drought curbed production, according to the Federal State Statistics Service.

The average national yield was 2.3 metric tons a hectare (2.47 acres) as of Aug. 1, down from 3.2 tons a year earlier, the agency, known as Rosstat, said in an e-mailed statement today. The Krasnodar region, Russia’s biggest grain-growing area, reported a yield of 4.1 tons a hectare, down from 5.6 tons a year earlier, it said. Stavropol, the second-biggest grower, had yields of 2.4 tons, down from 4.1 tons in 2011, and Rostov, the third-biggest region, was down to 2.4 tons from 3 tons, Rosstat said.
