Sweden’s Wheat Crop Is Little Changed After Rain Halted Reaping

Sweden’s winter-wheat harvest was little changed last year, even with record-high yields, after rain made reaping impossible in some regions, the government statistics office reported.

Winter-wheat production was 1.96 million metric tons, compared with 1.97 million tons in 2011, Statistics Sweden said on its website today. Yields rose to 6.83 tons a hectare (2.47 acres) from 5.63 tons. The grain was harvested from 286,260 hectares, down from 349,500 hectares.

“Long periods of rain have led to a total lack of harvesting in significant areas,” Statistics Sweden wrote. “The areas that were able to be harvested in many cases produced high yields.”

Spring-wheat production climbed to 357,500 tons last year from 260,900 tons in 2011, while farmers harvested 1.64 million tons of spring barley, compared with 1.34 million tons in the prior period.

The harvest of winter rapeseed advanced to 231,100 tons from 173,500 tons, while spring planting of the oilseed produced 87,200 tons, up from 74,000 tons.
