1998 grain harvest bigger

Slovakia's overall 1998 grain harvest is expected to rise by 6.1 percent year-on-year to total 3.1 million tonnes, the Slovak Statistical Bureau said on August 6. The bureau said that according to a survey conducted up to July 15, the biggest increases in the harvest are expected for rye, barley and triticale. "This (higher overall harvest) is expected because of a larger sown area in all surveyed types of grain, which altogether rose by 4.4 percent, and because of higher expected yields per hectare," the bureau said.The harvest per hectare is forecast to increase by 0.05 tonnes to 4.13 tonnes in 1998. Oil seed harvest is forecast to fall by 37.4 percent to 122,900 tonnes in 1998 because of a 30.1 percent decrease in sown area.
