German winter wheat sowed area for 2018 crop down 5

German winter wheat sowed area for 2018 crop down 5.6 pct on yr

5/15/2018

 

HAMBURG, May 15 (Reuters) - Germany's winter wheat sown area for the 2018 harvest has been reduced by 5.6 percent to about 2.95 million hectares, Germany’s national statistics office said on Tuesday.The office had in December estimated a 4.7 percent reduction.

 

A reduction had been expected after repeated autumn rain prevented some farmers from carrying out their planting intentions. Germany is the European Union's second-largest wheat producer and exporter. In most years it is the EU's largest producer of rapeseed, Europe's most important oilseed for edible oil and biodiesel production. Grain maize (corn) sowings increased by 7.4 percent to 463,000 hectares, it said. Plantings of silo maize, a major crop used for farm feed andbiogas output and not generally sold on the market, were increased 2.6 percent to 2.14 million hectares.
