Bulgaria keeps reducing barley acreage

Similar to other Black Sea countries, spring planting in Bulgaria lags far behind last year due to its delayed start. So, as of March 29, 2018, corn for grain had been sown on 0.5 Th ha versus 14.3 Th ha by the same date in 2017. Spring barley was planted on an area of 0.3 Th ha (2.3 Th ha in 2017). Feed pea plantings already reach 4.3 Th ha (20.0 Th ha) with those of oats totaling 1.1 Th ha (5.4 Th ha).
