Bulgaria: Grain and Feed Update

The first tentative post-harvest data on 2015 grain crops showed a higher than previously expected wheat production; barley production in line with earlier forecasts and much lower corn crop due to the summer heatwave. Ag Sofia has reduced its estimates for corn to 2.55 MMT from the previous 2.7 MMT. Corn harvest as of October 22 was reported to be completed on 75% of the area. Reportedly, grain exports in the current year are approaching 1.6 MMT for wheat, 280,000 MT of barley and 260,000 MT of corn as of end-October.
