Statistical news

Autumn sown areas on record level again


This year’s autumn sowing of cereals and oilseed crops amounted to 652 800 hectares. It is 13 percent more than average in the past five years and on the same record level as in the autumn 2020. Dry conditions during autumn hampered establishment of autumn sown oilseed crops, why some areas were resown with other autumn sown crops. Winter wheat accounted for more than 70 percent of this year’s total autumn sown acreage.
