Russian harvest update

Russia has harvested 10.7mha or 23% producing 37.2mmt dirty weight yielding 3.48mt/ha.

The yield has dropped a smidge on last week’s report but is still up on the same point last year (2.84mt/ha although I’m not sure of the benefit of these year by year comparisons, what does it really tell us).

Wheat 31.4mmt, yield 3.66mt/ha (3.05mt/ha in 2013); barley 3.1mmt, yield 3.15mt/ha (2.34mt/ha); oilseed rape 342kmt, yield 1.63mt/ha (1.7mt/ha).
