MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS/. Grain harvest in Russia should be over 100 mln tonnes in 2017, Department Director of the Agriculture Ministry Vladimir Volik told reporters on Thursday.
"Yes, in any case," the official said responding to the question whether the grain harvest is over 100 mln tonnes in 2017.
Volik did not give a more accurate forecast. Crop producers should give their estimate first, he said.
According to preliminary data, Russia gathered an all-time high grain harvest of 119.1 mln tonnes in 2016, up 14% year-on-year. Final figures of grain harvest will be presented in March 2017.
