Bulgaria to Export over 2 M Tonnes of Wheat in 2014

Bulgaria to export over 2 million tonnes of wheat in 2014, despite the lower yields compared to 2013, according to Ignat Angelov, Chair of the Union of Agricultural Cooperatives “Danube 2000.”
In a Sunday interview for Radio Focus – Veliko Tarnovo, Angelov argued that the decrease by 10-15% in the yield in the 2013-2014 agricultural year would not have a negative impact on exports.
He informed that the total bread wheat yield in 2013 had amounted to over 4 million tonnes, adding that it was expected to reach a similar level in 2014, at around 4 million tonnes.
He said that Bulgaria’s consumption traditionally stood at 1.8-2 million tonnes, meaning that there would be enough wheat to meet local demands.
