MOSCOW, August 23. /TASS/. The grain crops in Russia will be over 100 million tonnes, though 1.5 million hectares of land in eleven regions were hit by drought, Minister of Agriculture Alexander Tkachev said in an interview with the Rossiya 24 television channel on Sunday.
"Russia’s eleven regions were hit by drought, and crops were lost at 1.5 million hectares of land - these losses are quite big, but in fact this was not the biggest drought we had," he said. "Anyway, the forecast is that Russia’s grain crops will make 100 million tonnes, or even more if the conditions are good now. I do not think this is a top limit."
The Russian ministry of agriculture forecasts the grain crops in the country this year at 102.9 million tonnes, the ministry’s press service told TASS earlier.
