Deep fall in Argentine wheat planting

The planting of wheat has suffered a drop of almost 20% in Argentina this year, Ministry of Agriculture figures show. Some 95% of the area had been planted by the time of the August 9th survey, which revealed a 19.1% fall from 4.5 million ha last year to just over 3.6 million ha. However, the planting of barley had risen by 16% to almost 1.4 million ha with some 99% of the coverage completed, according to the Ministry’s statistics service, the SIIA. The sowing of other major oilseed and cereal crops starts next month. There had been late rains, which partly compensated for the drought suffered in much of the country’s agricultural areas.
