Concerning wheat, it can be said that there are still free stocks, but the farmers keep back them as in the case of corn. Sowing of winter wheat is underway. The total estimated Ha is 960.000 Ha, which is bigger than the last year when due to the heavy rain last year’s October interval, the total final fields were 840.000 Ha.
Experts say the grain segment has to prepare itself for productivity decrease because the fertilizer prices are 400-500% higher than the last year. Pesticides prices are 30% higher. Gas price is by 100% higher. Altogether among the input prices, the fertilizers have increased the most, which will cause the farmers to mitigate the usage of fertilizer, which will foreseeingly bring about yield loss, which predicted loss would even stabilize the current high price levels.
