Harvest Guesstival

The superbly named Hydrometeorological Center of Ukraine are the latest punters to have a stab at what they reckon the 2010 grain harvest will be coming in with winter grain production of nearly 21MMT.
Last week the vice Premier for agriculture Viktor Slauta said wheat production will fall by "about 15%" on last season which would suggest a wheat crop of less than 18 MMT.
I’ll weigh in with my best randomly plucked guesstimate of 19MMT and call it a meal at the rather excellent Da Vinci Fish Club restaurant to the winner.
