Farmers have harvested most of their grain

As of July 31, Slovak farmers have harvested grain crops from 90 percent of the 628,000 hectares they had sown, according to figures from the Slovak Farm and Food Chamber (SPPK).

SPPK spokesperson Stanislav Nemec said the average harvest per hectare of wheat was 4.02 tons, and the average barley harvest was 3.32 tons per hectare.

These figures were considerably less than an estimate from the Slovak Statistics Office on June 20.

According to Nemec, the barley harvest is the biggest disappointment to farmers. There is only eight percent of the sown area left to harvest from 210,000 hectares.

The average per hectare harvest is even weaker than last year's poor harvest, when it was 3.48 tons per hectare, according to official statistics.
