Cereal production in 1998 is expected to be above last yearÂ’s poor harvest, reflecting an increase in area planted due to normal weather conditions during the growing season. Aggregate output of wheat and barley in 1998 is estimated at about 6.1 million tonnes, compared with 3.6 million tonnes last year.

Imports of wheat in 1998/99 (July/June) are forecast at 1.5 million tonnes.
