Belarus harvest update

Belarus has harvested 1.735mha or 72% of the planned area.

They have produced nearly 7.0mmt of grains with an average yield of 3.98mt/ha.

They are also reporting that they are on top of next season’s crop with 138kha of land (already) prepared for planting winter oilseed rape which apparently constitutes 33% of the plan.

All this centralised agricultural planning must make the job so much easier for farmers; imagine if your government interfered helped you plan your business, wouldn't you be truly grateful.
